Check the distributor for oil inside. If there is, the distributor has failed

I just replaced with a used one and doesn't have any oil inside I took it out this afternoon I also check the wire for resistance and they are working fine

It still could be bad. They are very common for failing and using a used one is a recipe for disaster
