1967 Engine will not fire at all. Traced back to the points. Coil is hot on both sides with ignition on and tests out perfect, but when I put the wire on the negative that goes to the points I no longer get a test light reading from the negative side of the coil (very slight) When I take the wire off the points terminal I get a strong signal from the wire, when I connect the wire back on the points I get nothing. When the points are closed shouldn't I still get a signal from the point terminal with my test light ?

Thanks for any help

It sounds like you are chasing a short. Have you tried measuring the resistance to ground of the wire you described connecting?
