808AllDay is cool... so far.
Unhappy Car has no spark, but new distributor coil has power, igniter also replaced

A buddy of mine and I are trying to bring the CB back to life. We replaced the coil as well as the igniter, and the coil was tested and has power to it. The catch, which I find weird, is that both the positive and negative points attached to the coil have power. The coil doesn't seem to be sending power to the plugs, so the car will not start. I'm running an internal coil distributor from a 91 in my 93, and have put a fuse in the plug for the external coil as is suggested.

Anybody have any ideas?

Igniter, perhaps? It often fails more frequently than the coil.

main relay might be melted or cracked at the solder joints.

sorry found something new that supposes my theory

http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showpost...05&postcount=1

at the bottom

"No spark
-check at coil, if good at coil replace cap and rotor.
-test light on positive and with cap off for internal coil, place on negative end of coil. Have someone turn the engine over, the test light should blink rapidly. if no blink or intermittent...check ignitor, positive end of coil for battery source and signal from ecu.
-if no power at coil + which is the blk/yellow wire, check ignition switch for power and main relay"
