No Ignition Fire on my 68 ford falcon

i've just became a Owner of a 1968 ford falcon, even thu its ben sitting for 20 years. it still turns over.
ive bought a new coil and thur sum newer battery cables and battery on it. and wired up the starter solenoid thats on the firewall the best i could.
now there is no key switch in car, cuase sumone lost key.
and i have ran my own wire from the starter solenoid on the terminal marked "I" for ignitoin and nothin ran to the "S" for switch. i by pass the starter solenoid by touching the bigger terminals on the side together with pliers, and it will turn over. but no fire.

so im not to sure bout the whole Starter Solenoid thang for one.
and if the wiring of the coil has to go thur sum kind of wiring that cuts down the volts, instead of have it straight wired to battery, witch when i had it like that to began with, it seemed like it sparked inside the distibutor when i touched the lil point termanels that open, and now when wire to starter solenoid it and doing nothing.

i just really need a wiring digrams of the hole starter solenoid, and switch, and distibutor, and coil.....

i just wanna hear her fire up!
its a Straight 6 also

If you want to wire it up just to get it to fire, run a wire from the positive battery terminal to the + side of the coil

You can jump the solenoid by jumping the small terminal, usually labeled s to the large stud on the solenoid that connects to the battery.
Not sure if Ford used resistor wire or not.he above procedure should produce spark when the engine is cranked if the points and other ignition parts are functioning.

a 20 year old condensor is likely shorted out internally.. change that and the points, and it should get spark..
