Drill a hole and tap a screw, or just move your accelerator cable clip 1 up

Sounds like the coil got fried - what did you set your dwell to (mS)?

How long in milli secs the coil charges for. Its on the setup screen, should be around 2.5 to 3 on a standard coil

If you look on the Main Setup screen on the Dicktator, on the right side of the screen will be a value for 'Charge Time'. If this value is too high you will oversaturate the coil and it will burn - value should be around 3mS or less...

That will be fine, maybe check your wiring to see if it's not touching somewhere (to burn an earth connection it must touch +12V)

That means that the problem existed in the coil at that moment - a short circuit through the coil.
