    4u2nv, that white box is the ballast resistor. It came from Black Dragon.

    Thanks d240zx2. I will as soon as I change all the fluids, stop the coolant leak and replace the rotted floor pans. Don't want to end up sitting in the road .

    I finally got back to working on my '73 240Z. Put a Pertronix ingnition with 3.0 ohm coil in and she started right up. Adjusted the timing and she's running great. First time the engine has run in six years. Thanks to everyone for your posts and to everyone on this forum.

    Thanks for the replies. Unfortunately, I only have access to the car every few weeks. It's now stored in a garage about 100 miles from me. The car has clean gas in it and does turn over. I've been using an in-line spark tester. I'll check the points to make sure they're opening and closing and set at the right gap.

    The coil is getting hot with the ignition on (now that I've finally switched the wires to the right terminals on the coil). I'm guessing the problem is somewhere in the distributor setup. Is it possible the new condenser is bad? I put the old one back on to double check and still nothing. Double checked the plug wires...1,5,3,6,2,4. Pulled the new plugs and they're still clean and with right gap. I'm stumped.

    Plugs are brand new and gaped properly. I've checked connections all around. Cleaned a few that had corrosion. The rest looked tight and clean. I should mention the car was sitting for six years. One owner previously and he didn't mess around with the wiring at all.

    I'm a new member and new to Z cars. I've recently come into a '73 240z and I'm getting no spark. I've replaced the battery, battery cables, coil, resistor, condenser, plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, rotor, and points. Still nothing. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
