The small spark was between the wire and the coil. The battery is near dead as I have been turning it over a lot this evening. No I did not clean the points and the gap may be wrong as I only had a spark plug gaping tool. Used the video from This web site to tell me how to set points. Mice had made a nest in by the key switch. the wires are all very old and cracked at many places. I will try hot wiring again after cleaning and checking gap on points. Will watch with distributor open also. Thanks for all the advice.
