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.
