Sorry I haven't gotten back lately, been hurting so I haven't been working on the car much. I put in the replacement distributor on Thursday, again with no spark. So, I went back to the parts store and bought an adjustible spark tester tool. Hooked up the coil wire to it, grounded the tool as instructed and still no spark. I took off both positive wires from the coil (power and electric choke), ran a jumper wire directly from the battery to the positive side, still no spark.......

Then, a thought crossed my mind.....If I fried my electric choke, would that, in turn, cause damage to my new coil if they were hooked together? I just can't figure out how I get no spark directly from the coil. I have checked and re-checked all the wires, all the voltage readings are good. What in the world am I missing.........?
