buy a whole new coil assembly. The one you have is probably bad. Make sure to place the new one in the exact same position. The arent too expensive to buy. Please award points if this helps

Make sure your wire is hot to the coil when the ignition it turned on. And wire from the coil is connected to the distributor. Your condenser screw is tight on the ground and the small wire is in the correct position center of the points tab with the screw tightened. Ask at the auto store what the points gap needs to be set at they should be about 18 thousands make sure they open and close when the distributor is rotation. Replace rotor and cap to. http://www.jetav8r.com/Vision/Ignition/CDI.html This is a good link.
