If you have spark from the coil, but not from the distibutor the problem is going to be one of three things - leads, cap or rotor.

The coil produces the spark, it goes via a lead to the distributor cap, down the center tower to the rotor and then via the rotor to which ever plug tower the rotor switches it.

The purpose of the coil is to generate a spark, which is then "distributed" to the appropriate sparkplug to ignite the fuel/air mixture

In your first post you say there is fire from the coil but not the distributor, in your second post you again say you have fire from the coil, and in the third you don't - sounds like you're going backwards.

I'm beginning to think you need to seek assistance - from someone who knows how to use the test equipment he (or you) has (have).

Checking an ignition coil for spark is as simple as disconnecting the high tension lead from the distributor, holding it an eighth of an inch from the block and cranking the engine - either it sparks or it doesn't.

You said you had "fire" from the coil - where was this "fire"?
