Hi David,

The paperclip has proved the rest of ignition system etc is good.
The fault is in the distributor.
The mag pickup is faulty, or the shaft is not turning.

Can you measure the resistance of the pickup across the orange/black and purple/black?

Should be about 400-700 ohms.

Outside of this the pickup is shorted or open.
