    check the terminals, battery can be good but if the terminals are loose then its just as if the thing is dead

    Battery cables are good, and it cranks over. Pulled cap and the rotor is turning, but there is no spark coming out of the coil

    Ok, I checked the power running to the coil and there is power there, so I guess Auto Zone sold me a bad coil. Going to buy a new one and see if that does the trick! I'll let you know how it works out.
