Long story short the car sat from 2005-Now in 2020. i got it to start but it would not idle so i took apart the carb and put new floats in. when i put the carb back in the car did not have spark.
Here is a list of all the parts ive replaced.
Spark plugs
Coil
Ignition module
Ignition Switch
Distributor Ignition pickup
There is power going to the coil but nothing coming out.
Any help would be great thanks
Mike.

I've seen more than one bad brand new coil over the years.
