Post no spark out of cap

I was having problems with no spark at the coil and have found that problem it was the speed and reference sensor the old owner of the car decided to cut a wire on the speed sensor… well now my problem is I have no spark out of the cap.. I have cleaned out the cap and checked everything. The belts do move so its not that I do have spark going into the cap but nothing out of it???
Is it the cap or rotor??
Where is there a cheaper one I am kind of strapped for cash so I need to get one somewhat cheap?


Thanks for any help

Shane

Check the sping loaded center contact and the rotor from the center to the tip. Think there is a resistor in it. Then maybe not.

There is a chance that the HV cable between the coil and the cap has been caught and damaged by the arm on the head light linkage. Pulls the wires out of the connectors inside of the weather boots.

When was the last time you changed your timing and balance belts and/or cam chain and tensioner?

Do you have spark out of the coil? It's just not getting out of the cap?

Yeah, most likely what Tom said, one of the two bolts holding the rotor on may not be installed. If your rotor points in the wrong direction when the spark fires, it's not gonna make it out of the distributor cap...
