Try a factory coil and make sure your negative terminal on the coil isn't grounded. Also, your distributor could be 180* out of rotation. Try pulling it, rotating it 180* and sliding it back in. If you can, snap a pic of the coil wiring setup, and label where you have everything running. Twitch

If the dizzy is 180 degrees out just swap the plug wires around...

So I put the coil it came with back on it.Everything is as it was when I first got it and it ran .. I don't think I'm getting fuel into the carb.. i mean it's flowing from the fuel line and the looking glass on the side of carb fills up but when I manually pull throttle on carb I can't see gas pouring from anywhere .. and it doesn't smell like gas when I've been,trying,tk start it for a bit . . like it's not flooding . How do I make sure the negative terminal in the coil isn't grounded?

I pulled the #1 spark plug and out my finger over the hole til I felt air push out then hand cranked it the short distance rest of the way to line up the flywheel to the zero degree mark . the Rotor on my distributor is pointing at the #1 wire position on the cap which is between 12 and 1 o'clock if you're standing in front of the car looking towards the rear. The dizzy I have in it has a black and a blue wire coming out of it .. I have another one that has a red and a white wire coming from it, but looks like the module thing that the one in the car has in it, is missing . Or it wasn't made to need one? idk. Also have another carb . Same brand as the one in my car but looks like it has less going on on the outside . I have that one completely disassembled as I just cleaned it and am gonna try and do a mechanical conversion so the secondary opens more like a Webber

I'm so confused at this point... Do you have spark or not??? If you don't, you need to track that down first.

my buddy here was a quart or 2 low on oil so i,figured he can have some of mine since I ain't using it and it's all new oil I just put in there.. popped the oil plug off and what looks like water and smells like gas came pouring out!! Wtf!? And just last night i noticed a nice puddle of gas on the driver side about where the driver door and the back driver side door meet.

Gas leaks further back, find and repair, just because fire hazard.

 

Gas mixed in the crankcase?  If you crank long enough, enough times without firing, you could eventually get enough by the rings to be noticeable.

 

Not a good idea to be trying to run an engine that low on oil, even if it was good oil.
