New situation, it will not crank all I get is a click sound from either the coil or maybe the ignition control unit ( it is right next to coil so it could be that not sure) and their is also click/ noise coming from distributor.

It will start if I bump start it, battery reads 12.85 v looked in manual for testing hall sender and coil and ignition control unit but was getingt bizzar readings, not sure if i'm doing wrong or multi meter is bad,

this happened today after i stalled engine went to restart sounded like weak battery on first attempt crank made low slow moan then then nothing and now what I described above .
