1992 Holden Statesman V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 200, 00 miles

engine cranks over, but wont start. Has weak spark from coil (dull orange) have replaced coil, and changed ignition module with no change to spark. Have also tried a new lead from coil. Has new battery, rebuilt motor. Was running when I drove into shed to put timing lite on it, then it stopped and now will not start.

Weak ignition system

Measure the coil's positive terminal voltage.

Do this run a jumper wire from the battery positive post to the coil positive terminal -is it still dull orange-

If voltage ta positive side of coil is low could that be caused by a power wire that is maybe resting against hot header pipe?
