I need help! I have been trying to get the scout to fire up to no avail. I was having trouble with no spark at the coil. Today, I checked my wiring again, compared it to another scout with the same set up that I am trying to run (remote starter solenoid, Pertronix, but a 345 instead of a 304) and to all the wiring diagrams in the shop manual and had a little luck but not enough to get it to fire. I am still not getting a spark at the coil, except for one exception... when truning the key off, I will get one spark from the coil wire (which incidently it quite strong and shocking ) This was first experienced when testing the coil by pulling the coil wire from the distibutor and grounding to the enginge. When cranking I got nothing, but when the key was turned to the lock position it fired one spark. With a timing light on the coil wire, there is nothing at all until again shutting the engine down, when I get the same single spark. Wire to positive side of coil reads 12.6 V, until cranking when it drops to 9.5-10 V or so. So far the only good thing to come out of this problem is a new digital multimeter! Any ideas on what is happening here?
