No spark

Asked by Jun 09, 2018 at 08:44 PM about the 1977 Ford F-350

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1977 RV with the original ford 460 engine.
I can get it to try to turn over but not start. I
checked the  spark plugs and there's no spark. The
spark plug cables test fine. As does the distributor
cables and the coil. I'm a novice mechanic and I
don't know much about this old of an engine. Any
ideas what the issue could be?
