Default No spark-VP 5.0/305 w/ Mallory breakerless

Port engine has gone from difficult to impossible to start. Using a Lisle spark tester from local auto supply, I do not get an indication of a spark.
  1. VP AQ225B engine
  2. Mallory E Spark p/n 6001M breakerless conversion kit (installed ~2008)
  3. Steady +V at B+ coil terminal with ignition switch on
  4. Flashing +V at coil-to-distributor terminal when cranking engine
  5. Primary coil resistance 1.8 ohms
  6. Secondary coil (coil B+ terminal to coil tower) resistance 9k ohms
  7. Wire from coil tower to distributor resistance 800 ohms
All the above seems normal to me. Am I missing something?
Thanks for any help.
