The coil will discharge when you break the points with the ignition on! You ground the high voltage wire from the coil, this is to keep you from getting zapped (tape the brass end that went into the cap to the fan housing). The test light lead hooks up to the same low voltage terminal that the distributor is going to (little green wire) and ground the other end of the light. The rotor is connected to the crank and should only turn if the engine is being turned. Rotor turns clockwise so move the body counter-clockwise to simulate rotor movement or to advance timing.
