Where your finger is would be the original ignition coil. Do you have spark and fuel? HTH. -Jim

Why are you asking me this, I gave no idea..I'm not a mechanic

I'm assuming that you're working on the vehicle. That's why I asked. An engine needs 3 things to run. Spark, fuel, and compression. HTH. - Jim

Ok, no problem. It looks like, from the picture, that someone else had a similar problem and installed another ignition coil. Remove the cylinder shaped ignition coil. It's not supposed to be there. When you have the ignition in the run position, check for power at the ignition coil. You should have about 6 to 8 volts DC. HTH. -Jim

The coil wire should be connected to the ignition coil on one end and the center tower of the distributor cap on the other end. HTH. - Jim
