Hello, you need to do some voltage tests and then let me know what you find,
with the key on check:
voltage to the B+ terminal in the diagnostic check connector under the hood
voltage to the 100 alternator fuse in the fuse box under the hood
voltage to the plus side of the coil
voltage at the red white wire of the distributor and igniter
after that I'll have to get my wiring diagram and look into it a little deeper
