It also has continuity all thru the dist in here on the kitchen table and no grounding anywhere that i can find when the points are open it does not ground anywhere to ghe housing or anywhere could the condensor be bad i have a new dist cap for it and a new rotor but the rotor is too tight to get on so i did not use it please advise thank you

I had one that I put all new stuff in it, coil, points, condensor etc.
On the bench it had good spark, but when I put it on the tractor nothing.
I found out that when it was being installed on the tractor the coil wire was pinched and grounding out.
