Help!!! I am trying to start up a 1966 Mustang Coupe, 289, 2bbl carb thats been sitting. Here's what ive done so far; drained the old (yellow) gas, flushed the lines, replaced, condensor, pointset (gap at .32 cause specs say .30 to .33) spark plugs & wires, new coil, new starter solenoid, new battery, distributor cap & rotor, new leads on coil to distributor and wiring from dashboard (ignition key) to coil.
I have tested the + terminal to engine block for continuity and its good. Key off-nothing, key on-i get an audible signal on my ACTRON CP7677 multimeter.
But no spark from coil to distributor, its a brand new coil and i even tested IT for resistance!
So i did it the old fashioned way (which can be painful) hold the wire from the center of the coil to the center of the distributor about 1/8th of an inch and look for electricity to try jumping from the wire to the center post on the distributor - nothing happens. I checked the wire from the negative point on the coil to and through the bottom of the distributor and the wire is good (continuity)
Engine cranks just fine but it wont start. Where is my electrical break?
