1. points not opening or closing
2. Bad condenser
3 bad rotor or cap
4. Bad coil
5. Not likely but could be just a bad wire from the switch to the coil.
First you need to know if you have voltage to the coil -- if yes- go to 6.
if no -- go to 7 ..
6. Put a piece of thick paper between the points contacts, then check for voltage at the points from the coil . If there is voltage at the points ,, check the gap with the points wiper set on the high side of the lobe on the cam in the distributor . A gap of .015-.018 is most common on that engine.
7. If no voltage then back track to the ignition switch ,, fuse box , then battery
I put a plug wire in the coil output to the distributor and a plug in the other end -- lay plug on block and crank engine .. If there is spark at the plug , your in the ball game . If the spark is orange change capacitor if blue spark good to go . you might want to clean and gap your plugs before you reinstall them .

Outside of trying a junk yard, the only other place that I know of for trucks that old is----- www.lmctrucks.com, and get a free catalog for that year, can also order on line.

Red is switched 12 volts (+) off the ignition switch or other switched source.
Yellow is for the Tach's internal light, it should be hooked to the Headlight Switch dash light dimmer control.
Blue and the Black are both grounds (-), you can twist those together and ground them to the same point.
Green goes to the Negative (-) side of the ignition coil.
