its like getting power to both the positive and negative, or something but then theres ZERO power coming from the center..even when the coil is hard wired to the battery itself. its done this on 3 coils, and 1 is brand new. if anyone knows anything about electric stuff PLEASE HELP!

Okay, I'll try best to explain WTF is going on...

The negative wire to the coil has a good ground.
The positive wire to the coil is getting power.

Yet no power is coming out of the coil. Any of them.

This is the hard part to explain. I'll have to jot it down on some paper next time I'm over there.

You can hook up the negative wire to the negative terminal on the coil, and with a test light if shows that it is ground. BUT, when you hook it up to the positive wire, both of them read nothing.

Also, with the coil hooked up to the ground, it had a good ground test. THEN, when you put power onto it, they BOTH test good for ground, but neither for power.

WTF????

I think we're just going to have to rip out most of the wiring and re-do it....

What engine & year???

And, if the coil (primary) has good power and good ground to it, the next thing to check is whether or not its being signaled to fire.....

what????

So, lemme get this straight. It's a 302 that is carbed, but uses a distributorless ignition system (only reason I can see it having a EFI computes, unless some fucking hillbilly converted it back to a carb)

Exactly....if this isn't a go, you need to tell us what kind of ignition system it has - then we can possibly post up what the engine uses to tell the coil to fire (like for EFI engines it uses the crank sensor, etc...)
