Have a peak at these lobes for comparison.

"I'm getting juice to the coil, but not to the distributor. I swapped in a new coil with the same results." Well, there's your problem :-}
Try these T/S steps to narrow it down a bit further:
Bypass the ignition switch. Did that help?
Remove the cap/rotor. Turn motor to open the points - Turn the key on & place one probe of your volt meter to one side of the points & the other probe on the other side of the points. You should see battery voltage.
Still No Go?
Attach test light clip to ground. Put your tester probe on the nut where the wire enters the distributor. If the light comes on, you know the problem is inside the distributor somewhere.
If the light does not come on, put your probe on the + side of the coil. If still no light, move to the - side of the coil.
Keep going until you get a light on your tester. When you do, you know your problem is somewhere between that point and the next connection where there was no light.
Could be a bad wire, bad coil, points, or short inside the distributor. Inspect the delicate, copper strap inside the distributor that carries the current to the points. It frequently cracks but looks good except under close scrutiny.
