Check for power getting to the center top connection at the coil.
Are the points opening?
Are they fully closing?
Check for a grounded connection/wire in the dist?
Be very careful how you set the coil onto the dist.

My 1942 9n ford tractor


Try replacing one plug wire, connect to plug and clamp plug base to some good ground with vise grips then crank and check for spark. Could it be as simple as bad wire from top of coil to dist. cap?

I guess you could have the ignition analyzed on an oscilloscope. Maybe a tech could see something then.
I always heard the only gap was the spark plug gap-the rotor has no gap-are you sure you got the correct rotor? And does it touch the top distributor cap coil wire tower?

Let us know. It is a mystery worthy of a solution.

I got fire to my points on my 4 cylinder 1932 ford but not to my plugs what's wronghat wrong


Could be a bad coil. Check its resistance and compare to specs (find some real old mechanic to tell you what specs to expect, if you have to-lol). Also could be a bad high tension lead from coil to dist. cap-can also be checked for too much resistance.
Do the points open and close when engine is cranked? Are they set right-about 0.015 inches- or two matchbook covers placed together? If coil and high tension cable are good, and points are good and set right, the condensor that goes with the points may be bad-try a known good one-I'm assuming that old car has a condensor to trap the current when points open so no sparks at points occurs.
If everything checks out so far, maybe the distributor rotor is not making good contact to transfer the high voltage current from the coil cable to the spark plug wires.

MY 1969 YAMAHA ENDURO WONT GET SPARK OR FIRE IVE CHECKED EVERY THING I NEED SOME TIPS FAST


Fisrt check the plug and plug cap. Remove this and see if you have spark from the HT wire.
Check points are clean and points gap and make sure the wire is not shorted out and you have spark there.
If not, remove the HT coil wire and condensor wire and check for spark at the points again.
If you have spark then the bottom coil is ok and then connect the condensor wire and check again.
Connect the HT coil wire after checking no shorts and if you have spark at the points and still none at the HT side then your coil is probably faulty.

Ford 9N problems; Changed plugs, wires, cap, rotor, points, and ignition coil. Point gap at .015, new condensor. 6 V battery fully charged. No voltage drop to ignition coil. Results, no spark.


You might check ground. some of these units were ground positive. did you switch the posts?This would cause problems since the electrons are on the inside of the condinser.
Good luck

94 gmc sonoma 4.3l vortec new coil, plugs, wires cap and rotor still no spark coming from the coil?


The ignition module in the distributor is what you need to give the engine spark to the plugs. It senses signals from the PCM to regulate the spark control and this item is the part that took over the old style point & condensor type ignitions. It is time for a new one in your truck

1940 9n will not start, have replaced the points, condensor, 12 v coil, wires, new carb and the stark plugs. The only thing happening is gas coming out of the itake from the air cleaner. Also I replaced...


Is it cranking? Is there a spark? If there is no spark. I would look at the points again; unless you mean you replaced them now instead of in the fall. Look at the points and if they look frosted then try sanding them or replace them again. They can go bad quickly if there is moisture in the cap. Recheck the gap. It is possible that you got a bad condensor if the points are good. Check the cap and rotor for corrosion and remove this coorosion or replace them. Check that you have voltage at the coil. It might be a bad ignition switch. If all this is good turn the crank till the points close, turn the key on and check for a spark with the coil wire within a 1/4" of a ground when you open the points with a screwdriver. If it has spark; try spraying a little starting fluid into the carb. Let us know what you find out.

Spark from coil but not from plugs


Hello;
Take the distributor cap off, and turn the engine over. Does the rotor turn? Then pull the #1 spark plug and with your finger over the spark plug hole , tap the engine over to top dead center. See where the rotor is pointing. Also check to ensure your points are opening and closing. With an ohm meter make sure you have continuity through the carbon for the coil in the cap. Hope it helps.
Thanks;
