Welcome to the forum, is the coil in the cap? If it is, check for primary voltage to the coil/cap, pink wire, goes hot when you turn on the key. There may be a tach terminal on the cap, may/may not have anthing plugged into it. Use a testlite at the terminal, lite should pulse, engine cranking? One end of testlite touch to tach terminal, other ground at engine block.
