Welcome to MTF, What part of Illinois you from?

Is the points gap set correctly?
If you take the dist. cap back off, you can watch the points open and close. With the key on and the engine rolling over, you should see a small spark at the points contact each time they open. Do you?

If you put a test light on the wire that goes from the distributor to the coil, does it flash when you roll the engine over? That will tell us if the points are making contact, a lot of the new points will have a thin coating on them that can be a pain to remove.
