You could have a bad ignitor. It is located on the drivers side fender well. There is also still a good possibility that your ignition coil is bad, despite the fact that the coil resistance is checking out within specs. I would change the coil first; it's cheaper than the ignitor or the distibutor. If still no start and you have verified that the coil is getting voltage then it is the pickup coil in the distributor. Unfortunately, the pickup coil is not replaceable on its own. You will have to change the whole distributor to get a new pickup coil. Good luck.

The humbucker is a dual coil pickup that drastically reduces noise versus single coil pickups. A humbucker is also less bright than a single coil pickup. The selector switch is 5 way Position 1: Humbucker Position 2: Split coil humbucker (like a single coil) Position 3: Middle Position 4: Middle and Neck (like a humbucker) Position 5: Neck

A single coil pickup can possibly work with a break in the copper, but usually there will be a problem with the sound in some way i.e. weak or cutting in and out. You can either repair an obvious accessible break with solder, but if the break's location is unknown, you will need to rewind the whole coil. There are several companies that you can mail your pickup to who will rewind or alter a pickup for you.

you have to take the dash out then it is up against the fire wall .you could get a haynes book it tell you step by step how to do it
