Check if the coil is getting power from the ignition switch and also the coil's primary and secondary winding resistances-When you gapped the points do you have it on the high side of the distributor cam-

Check the rotor and cap condition it has to go thru here -if it doesn't you won't have spark on the plug ends

You sure you got the right rotor and cap?

You got spark coming out of the coil when grounded-Do you have it on the sparkplug ends-the rotor and cap together distributes the secondary voltages to the plugs-Do you have spark?
