79 Jimmy Coil Question


Junior Member
Hi-Granddad's Jimmy is getting no spark. Has a good module, good coil, good pickup coil, good battery, decent wires, decent cap/rotor. My question is that the coil has no ground strap (the strap that goes from the coil magnet to the cap slot) but it has a ground wire going from the coil to the coil magnet. So how is this coil grounded? Are all HEI distributors supposed to have the ground terminal (center rear of dist. cap)? The coil is heavily corroded and there was a lot of powdered rust beneath the coil. Could this ground strap be completely disintegrated? He was driving this vehicle a few weeks ago. Thanks for any insight
