Your voltage indications are proper, ... and the dist does have a pick-up
coil.

test lite at neg side of coil should have indication of blink as engine
is cranked

It's not all that different from GM HEI.. just not as integrated.

That sounds right.


Here's the basic circuit

Here's one of a few tests

These two should give you an idea on checking harness continuity and
voltages at the coil and ignition module...
