Have you checked if your ignition coil is putting out power? you know you have power to it but do you have any power going to the distributor?

Your ignitor has four terminals, three are side by side and one is around the corner, of the three that are together, the middle one is the blk/yel power wire, the power comes into the distrubutor via the blk/yel wire and goes to the coil + terminal, it then splits off and goes to the ignitor.

Make your own jumper wire from the coil + terminal and slip it into the ignitor middle terminal rubber cover, reassemble and retry, it appears that you have a broke wire or a wire that may only be holding on be a strand not allowing enough amperage to get through.

with ign in the on position chk to see if you have power at both black/yellow at the coil ( you should )

if you got power only on one . you got a bad coil

if no power at either one , you got a wiring issue from ign switch to coil or a bad ignit switch ]

if you got power at both of them and no power at ignitor , you got a wiring issue from coil to ignitor

try and let us know
