you could test for presence of 12 volts at the positive side of the coil (with the key in the "on" position)...look at the distributor cap to make sure it has the little springy button in the cap yet~...and is not cracked~

not seeing the "ballast resistor" may have been another car~

you have an "ignitor"...change it out with a junkyard one~
