OIL LEAKING FROM COIL- CHANGED IT- STILL

1980 Nissan 200SX

Electrical problem
1980 Nissan 200SX 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 160000 miles

headlights wouldn't work, so I fixed them with wires from under the steering column.
next day- I start the car it trys to start, but doesn't. I checked coil wire spark, all plugs, all have spark.
i noticed oil leaking from ignition coil.? I replaced it w/ new one, tried to start it- nothing.
took it back, put old one on. Checked fuel pump and fuel injectors, they both get gas into areas needed. Battery etc. Good. Still starts over just won't turn over to drive. What am I missing here.
