my 83 dodge quit on me the other day, no spark off the coil, so i changed the coil, ballast resistor, and ignition box, just seeing if anyone had any ideas what the problem could be. lease contact me

check your inline fuses there under the hood on the drivers side just give each wire a firm tug. if ones gone it'll break the wire in 2.

Try setting the gap in yer electronic distributor.Should be about 0.08 i thinks.
If that doesn't work,ya might need new reluctor/pickup assembly for the distributor.
Also try a different coil wire.
I been tripped up on that a few times after replacing all the obvious stuff.

look at the distributor I had a similar prob that turned out the piece that tells the coil when to spark wasn't turning the pin had broken off in the shaft
