I'd think there is a short to ground somplace in the secondary. If you haven't gotten this fixed yet, try a new wire from the center of the coil to the distributor. If that wire is bad or shorted to ground, it would cause the problem, but not the likely culprit. I'm thinking more like bad coil? 12 v in, and zippo out - check the easy stuff first - always. Look for disconnected wires.
