Unplug the main wiring harness at engine connector to eliminate any chassis wiring issues.

If still no spark clean (sand or use point file) the points on that side and set 0.014" +/- 0.002" and see if you have spark. Make sure to blow any sanding residue off the points contact surfaces when done.

You will likely want to remove the engine as there isn't much room to work.

It might be just me but there sure a lot of 80 model ss citations with ignition problems! Maybe there was a bad lot of parts I ruled mine out to be stator or condensers.
