Broken wire? Get an inductive timing light and check one at a time to find the culprit

Thanks for the help everyone, after replacing the cap,rotor,and points again, i added a resistor after the coil to the distributor and she fired right up.

I'm glad you have got it going which was probably your main aim. But to me as a mechanic in a former life I would be unhappy with the result because you never actually found the source of the problem. You will now have a collection of left over parts that may or may not be faulty.
