Do you measure battery voltage on the BLK/YEL wire attached to the igniter unit with the key in ON(II)?

You might want to have the coil and igniter unit tested at an auto parts store.

Same diagram for both distributors.

A problem with any of the ECU wires could prevent spark. Start by checking for an open or short in the YEL/GRN wire.

Both the igniter unit and coil are located inside of the distributor.

None with key in ON(II). Instead, with key OFF, check for a short or lack of continuity.
