Try putting the old coil or a known good coil in to see if you got a bad new coil. Double check that the distributor is installed with the rotor pointing towards the #1 tower when the #1 cylinder is at TDC for compression. Verify that the wires are installed correctly.

I would check the coil tower where the coil wire goes in it and make sure that the areas at the end of the wire and down inside of the coil are clean and shinny. If not then REPLACE coil and wires.If that stuff checks out to be okay, then you will need to replace the distributor cap and rotor. and It will fix your problem.

What would cause a 1986 Chevy S-10 305 not to start and read 0 OHMS at both terminals after replacing the coil and module?

Is that zero ohms measured in circuit or out of circuit? To get an accurate reading it needs to be out of circuit. Next, which scale did you use on the meter? If you're measuring on the 5k ohm scale, you won't get much useful information about your pickup coil or high voltage coil. On the other hand, if you're getting zero ohms and you're on the right scale, the coil is probably shorted internally.

What is the difference in a 305 and a 350?

The 305 & 350 are basically the same engine. The 305 just has a smaller bore(3.736 vs. 4.000), not quite the power or torque, but durability should be almost identical. It is more costy to rebuild a 305 than a 350 due to the popularity of the 350. If power is not an issue then go for the 305 if you can get one cheaper. If you want more power, then a 350 is the way to go.

Why will a 1998 Chevy k1500 305 fire but not run when it is wet or humid outside Not the coil ignition module or distr cap.?

I would suggest checking the outer case of the coil (s) itself. if there is a crack down to the interior portion of the coil (s) any moisture will get in through the crack (s) and might cause what you are experiencing. The moisture corrodes the internal components of the coil.
