Ok, an update....

tested the coil and it was bad. replaced the coil. (Went with an 8225 MSD)

Still no spark.

tested the module. Module was bad. replaced module.

fired right up. i also put die-electric grease on all of the connectors...just in case.

took it for a test run...

now the damned vacuum advance isn't working properly...but while changing the module I noticed the mechanical weights weren't in great shape. probably stuck closed.

So... I guess I'll upgrade the weights, get a new cap and pickup this weekend. Hell, I figure if I replaced half of it, mine as well go all the way!

Thanks for the info guys. i really appreciate it. once I actually thought about how the coil and module work, i figured out how to test them properly. big DUH on my part.

First time I have ever seen a coild AND a module go bad together.
Guess there is a first time for eveything.
