Need to see if 12V is present at the coil, and to the brain box as we use to call it. (mob)


simple Ford TFI pic. if you have power to the coil then check for a trigger signal from the module, if you have a trigger signal then the ignition coil is bad, if there is no trigger signal then you either have a bad ignition module or the distributor pickup coil is bad. HTH
