Thank you guys for both your answers. Correct there are no points on this distributor, and I have no power coming to the red wire on the distributor. That leaves the wiring to the ignition I think,? and the ignition itself which I know nothing about.

Not sure about wire colors but if your ignition switch is defective you will never get spark.
