First thing and real easy is to run a wire from the positive side of the coil straight to the positive side of the battery. This will provide a constant 12 volt source to your coil/distributor. Do not worry if you have the points back in or not for this test. A point system likes 7 to 8 volts to keep from burning them. A Pertronix prefers 12 volts.

This will eliminate almost all of the possible switch, solenoid, and tach possibilities. If this eliminates the problem it is the ignition switch or power to from the switch to the coil.

If the problem persists, then it is another issue such as the module or possibly the carb. Of note, to turn the car off you will need to get out and remove the power wire from the battery.
