HEI distributor no spark???
Have a 70's 327 in my 67 malibu. Wouldn't start tuesday morning, plenty of fuel, no spark. MSD street fire HEI distributor with built in coil. Have 12V to the coil. OHM'd coil, primary (batt wire to tach wire) good, .7 OHM's. Secondary, (batt wire to carbon pick up on bottom of coil was OL. MSD tech line says it's bad, buy a new one it also OHM's bad for secondary but Tech line says it's probably my multimeter. OHM's a 3rd coil at autozone using there meter for all 3, all OL, they say it's very hard to OHM the secondary. still no spark. Had module tested, passed about 10 times. OHM'd magnetic pick up, checked good. I found steps for measuring voltage out of the pickup (should be 3V mine is .5) that tested bad but MSD tech said that it was impossible for me to check voltage there, so my voltage check there is inaccurate. Help anyone.....
Supposed to be 76 degrees here in tacoma (freakish) and I really want to take my son's out in the hot rod.
