After I replaced the coil, points, condenser, distributor cap, battery cables (pos and neg), and spark plug wires. It still wouldnt run.
I checked spark off of the coil and had it there. but not on any plug wires. The rotor was good.
The problem was that the spring tip instde the cap wasn't there. I took the one out of the old cap and it fired right up. The other things I replaced needed to be replaced anyway, but I just did them first before I checked the distributor cap.
The transmission even works.
Not bad for a junk yard tow away, huh.
