Welcome to the forum Dave, what part of Michigan are you from?
As for the 9N, most likely something simple that just got missed.
From your voltage readings, I would say your points are closed or grounded.
Does that 2.5 Volts at the top of the coil change when the engine is turned over?
That would be about the right voltage when they are closed, but
should increase to 6 volts when the engine is turned so they are open.
If it never changes, something is probably grounded inside the distributor.
The little connector where the condenser hooks in can get pressed
in too far and ground out, the insulator at that connection can break,
the spring that holds the breaker plate in can ground things out if it
is not positioned right, or maybe the points just are not opening correctly.
If you have an Ohm meter you can check that using continuity test on the bench.
Let us know what you find, I'm sure you'll get plenty of help here.
