Do you have a test light or a meter? If not, may be time to get one. You need to check the voltage at the terminal on the top of the coil.
Is there voltage there? Is it the same as the full battery voltage? You can compare brilliance on a test light to determine this.
If the voltage is there, does it move up and down as you turn the starter?
If your ammeter is working, does it show discharge when you turn the key on? Does it swing up and back as you turn the starter?
With this much information one can give you a much better idea of where to look.
