Customer Question

1966 VW Bug 1300, 12v, jur4 dist,
I have replaced the distributor, adjusted the points (which are new as is the condenser that came with the dist. rebuild). New ignition coil. I have timed the motor but still get no spark. Cranks but no spark. Condenser wire to the 1 terminal and the other wires to the 15. Power is coming in from the ignition switch. I'm stuck.

Hello, are you using a coil rated for 12 volts? If you tak a test light and ground it then probe terminal 1 and crank the engine does it flash?
