I had a look at the spark again now that it's dark out and it's a pale blue color with a hint of orange in it. Don't know what that means, but I thought I would post it because it was asked for.
Just to clarify the tests with the jumper cables... I put a cable on the intake and connect it to the negative battery terminal to test the ground, and if that does not fix it, put a cable on the HEI positive input and connect it to the positive battery terminal? If neither of these work, am I to assume it's the coil then? I really don't want to have to take it in to get tested because all the speed shops are so busy they are backed up for days, even weeks. If all I need to do is pinpoint a faulty module I'll just go buy another one.
