IF the rotor is in fact not burned through(common on those), HAS THE BELT TIMING BEEN RE-CHECKED , TO MAKE SURE IT DIDN'T JUMP ON INITIAL START-UP?....If you are getting spark from coil wire , I would suspect problem is in dist.(again assuming the timing is correct) Check dist. timing also(driven off seperate shaft) and air gap between rotor and reluctor plate --------with cap off --line up cam and crank timing marks and then check dist. if it's not on #1 then the belt jumped on that pulley.
