Could someone help me. My 69 chevelle, with a 307, seems to be having ignition problems. I changed the contact points because they appear to be corroaded. I tested the volts to the coil and it seems to be getting about 6.00 volts with the switch on and about 9.00 while the engine is turing over. Since the coil is getting power, should I start testing the plugs. The engine is just turning over

Check for spark, gas, and combustion, and air. if its getting spark try pouring some gas down the throat of the carb if it fires then or trys then youve eliminated some possiblities

Whenever I suspect an ignition problem, I'll start at the plugs and work backwards. Pull a wire, stick a spark plug in it and hold the plug against a good ground to see if it's sparking.

I'll assume you gapped the points when you put them in. What do the distributor cap and rotor look like?
