Is it 6V/POS GRN or a 12V switch over job? Is the wiring all correct for whatever system you are using? If 6V, do you have the 1-Wire/3-Brush generator with the roundcan cutout? Do you have the OEM Ballast Resistor no matter if 6V or 12V? The front mount distributor breaker points are set to .015". The timing is set on your bench per instructions in manuals. The unit is mounted one correct way and if off 180 will damage the base and render it useless. You can static test the coil before replacing but if you changed it out and still had same problem, chances are it isn't a coil issue. I've never had a condenser go bad but some do from what I've read. Once plugs foul out/get wet, it will be doubly difficult for them to fire so pull and use a hand candle igniter to dry off, clean with a wire brush then recheck plug gap at .027" +/- .001". Firing order is 1,2,4,3 on all Ford tractors. A good strong battery is mandatory. Not just 'charged" but tested for specific gravity under load. Go slow, get the essential mails for reference, and ask questions. In case you forgot, and to help others with same issues, try these pix for reference:
