Yep, that was some of the first testing we did was continuity of the existing wires, and all tested good, but thinking problem is the ground side of the coil connection or distributor....which is next to trouble shoot.
If you read through much here, we took out the MSD and went back to new ICM, ICM harness, Coil. Also replaced the start switch under the dash, and checked everything front back sideways up down......
We will lick this for sure, as once we can get the engine to run, everything else can move forward with purpose
