Did you check all the grounds? To the coil, battery and body.

So you stated the ignition coil is good in your original question? Did you check it out like this? http://autorepair.about.com/od/troubleshooting/ss/coil-test-ohm.htm Then when you install it onto the car it doesn't work?

You might be sure your point gap is correct. It is possible if they are touching or pitted you would not see a spark.
