I have been trying to get this ignition coil and spark plug to light.

I connected a 6v batterys negative lead to the metal frame and flicked the positive lead against the protruding wire, I am seeing sparks coming from the point of conact but nothing from the spark plug.

according to my voltmeter the coil has 30k ohm resistance end to end and the spark plug has 80ish k ohms negative to positive and 0ohm negative to negative.

What am I doing wrong?

I did get it to spark by connecting it to the frame and clipping ground of the battery to the frame and touching the positive lead to the ground wire. I am now trying to wire the advancer: here is an image to referemce:

Ignition Coil Leftmost (1 pin)

Advancer second from left (1 pin)

Gearbox second from right (4 pin)

Battery Rightmost (4 pin, Positive, negative and a loopback)

So how do I now connect the advancer and coil to have the plug spark when I kick the starter?
