i've follewed all the wires back and their all going to the right place. i had to cut the ignition wire because it corroded and cracked, i crimped another wire to it but its not getting much spark. also, when my car is in the ON position, it starts and trys to crank over as if it was in the Start position. i checked the ignition switch and everything is in order.

Engine timing or points and condenser are the problem. Most likely points are bad or not properly installed. Could be bad coil but that is rare.
