I am not a Electrician by any means! There is current going to the coil and actually going right to the points. but when I crank engine over there is no spark.
I am wondering how the current gets to the spark plugs? Could the coil be bad?

Yes, the coil could be bad. Or, you could have other cheaper to fix problems. Have you been inside the distributor lately, as in changing the points? If so, check for continuity inside the distributor. It is very easy to ground the wire to the condenser when you replace the points. Point gap is .015. Re-check it, because they do slip if the screws are old (and most are) Next, remove the cork gasket under the coil and reinstall the coil. Put a piece of folded paper under the coil bail to hold it tight. Reconnect the wire on the top of the coil. Try it like this and if it cranks and runs you will know the spring pigtail needs to be stretched or the other flat tab on the coil needs adjusting.
