If the light does not come on, then that means your points (negative side of the coil) are always grounded.
To be sure, disconnect the green condenser wire from the coil. Re-attach the test light to coil neg and see if the light now comes ON when the key
is ON. If yes, then the coil is good, if no, then the coil has an open.
