Disconnect the wire/wires from the + side of the coil. Connect a jumper
wire from the + side of the coil to the + side of the battery. If you
get no spark, the problem is in the ignition (coil, distributor, etc.).
If you get a spark, the problem is in the electrical side.

Subject: Still no start
Thanks to Rick at HT Coatings for the clarification on the two red wires
the voltage regulator from the harness. I have repaired that and still
not start the car so I went through a progression of changing something
then trying to start the car. I changed out the coil, rotor cap,
and still no starting.
I tested all the fuses and verfied they were OK. All electical appears
Any other suggestions? Secret safety device that will allow the engine
crank and not start? I had not had an issue like this where everything
and the car would not start. I had the fusible link at the ammeter
nothing would work when that occured.
