WIRING NIGHTMARE

1967 Volkswagen Beetle

Electrical problem
1967 Volkswagen Beetle 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 3000 miles

I am building a sandrail dune buggy with a 1500 cc vw engine. It has a brand new wiring harness. It has been starting and running fine. The other day one of the wires got burned by the exhaust and shorted out. After repairing and wrapping the damaged area with electrical tape I tried to start it and it wouldnt start.I replaced the coil with a brand new one as there is no spark. That didnt work.I was thinking of replacing the voltage regulator but hate to if thats not it.I dont know what else to try. Please help.
