        Points closed voltage reading betwen coil terminals should be 
full system voltage.  It should be zero across the points and zero 
also across the ignition switch.  All of this assuming ignition 
switch is "on."  The coil will then be the only significant 
resistance in the circuit and therefore the only place where any 
voltage drop will be seen.  In places, like the closed points, and 
the "on" ignition switch, there should be no appreciable resistance 
and therefore no measurable voltage drop.

My 2 cents worth,
Dave Kernberger
