Ok guys just as I was beginning to suspect the distributor was my problem, I replaced the distributor with one that I had laying around and now I;m getting an attempt to start. Not running yet but trying so now I can get a light on the timing and get it set right on and I'm sure it will run. Thanks to all for your input and ideas but the thing that was throwing me off was getting a spark through the inlighn spark tester. I'm fully confident that it will be running when I have an hour or two to devote to it. These old distributors are very touchy and I would like a replacement option for an electronic distributor replacement for this FE.
