It’s a lack of spark

So my mechanic friend stops by with a known working distributor and we proceed to do some testing. First thing we did was pull the cap and noticed a couple of melted wires going to the coil under the cap. Thats a pretty good indication something is messed up. Still no spark from mine so he hooks up his and I crank it over a couple times and there is spark. It’s ¬†seems pretty definite it’s my distributor. So now I have the task of finding a distributor and installing it.
