1988 Ford Festiva

Electrical problem
1988 Ford Festiva 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 100000 miles

Recenly a buddy of mine bought an 88 ford festiva for 200 bucks to get going and drive for mileage. Bought not running. We have found that it is getting fueld, and replaced the fuel in it. Replaced the coil and someone else has replaced the distributor cap and rotor in it as they look bran new. The coil gets hot when the key is left on for a while. Anyone tell me what might be wrong and if there are supposed to be 4 wires on the hot side of the coil and two wires tied together on the negative side? Thanks. I'm getting like 9-10 volts to the coil but nothing out of it. Thanks
