So i ran a wire from the battery to the +ve terminal of the coil and got a spark when I held the lead next to the engine block and turned the engine over.

Therefore a spark is being generated so either the rotor or the dizzy cap could be faulty?? I don't think the Pertronix Ignitor could be faulty as it's brand new.


So when you fed 12V directly to the FT coil you got a spark? That means that the resistor wire drops the voltage to the coil too much for the FT coil to work.

Neither the cap or the rotor is at fault, you have to bypass the resistor to make the FT work!
