wait a minute... your are saying you have +12V on the negative terminal 
of the coil with the points open?

That IS what you are suppose to get!

If you close the points and still have +!@V on the negative terminal of 
the coil your points are simply not grounding the negative terminal.
Have you validated the wire from coil to terminal on the side of the 
dist actually has continuity?  (wire broken or not crimped as you think)
