Sunday i checked the vacuum and timing and that was it, even took a short drive down my road and it was all fine. I was going to recheck the timing yesterday but couldn't get it started

Pop the disturber cap and check the points first then the cap and make sure the button is clean. If all is good then take the coil wire off the disturber and place it near a ground have some turn the key and see if you can see a spark. If no spark coil is bad or wiring to it. If a spark then pop a plug wire off and do the same thing if spark move on to timing.

I have seen a 289/302 run really well and then not run at all then run really well when the timing is off.

Here is what I would do. Make sure you are at top dead center on the number 1 cylinder pop the disturber cap and see where the button is pointing if at number 1 you are good if half way between two points then you will need to turn the disturber to point at number 1 place cap back on and time it.
Check for fire then fuel if both are good then timing or vacuum or a little of both.

So the ignition coil is definitly the problem, i removed it last night to test it with my multimeter and the bottom was noticeably melted....the primary read 1.45 but i got no reading out of the secondary. Is this something that can just go up or do you think there could be another issue, all the wiring looks to be in good condition. Im gonna pick up a new coil today.

Alright im learning bear with me here. I installed the new coil still nothing but now i figured out that the car has a pertronix ignitor 2 electronic ignition installed now it was originally hooked up to the negative and positive of the coil is that correct or is it supposed to be wired differently or did i buy the wrong coil assuming the car had the stock distributer?

Well i guess im asking if i need a specific coil to go with the ignitor2 or should the oem coil work? I need to do some more research on the pertronix cause i dont fully understand how it works

Only one way to find out! Haha I think they sell just the electric ignition parts by themselves so i think you should be okay but don't take my word for it

I would definitely give pertronix a call. They will be able to tell you for sure if you're about to fry something.
