1973 Mach 1
« on: November 03, 2012, 09:02:55 PM »
I recently started working on my grandfathers 1973 Mach 1 that was sitting for 20+ years. 

I put in new plugs, wires, distributor cap, bug, condenser, points, and coil.

The points spark great but cannot get any fire to anywhere else!!

Any help is greatly appreciated.

OK bout to pull my hair out!!  Check both sides of the coil and both are getting power.  Changed the coil wire- and still nothing!!

Do you get a spark from the high voltage coil wire to ground when you have the ignition on and briefly ground the coil terminal connected to the points?  If not, the coil may be bad.

Not that I can see....  But I changed the coil w/ a working one from another ford and still no spark at plug or at coil wire.

What voltage reading do you have at the coil red/green wire with the key in "run"?
