buick 225 not firing at all?

so I have a buick 225 and its not firing. bought a new coil, no luck. if i take a volt meter to the positive side of the coil and ground to neg side no power. if i go from the pos side and ground else where i get 12 volts. if i turn the motor over and hold the spark plug wire coming off the coil to a ground i get not spark. there are three wires attached to coil 2 on positive side one goes to the starter and one throught the firewall and on the neg side goes to distributor, is this correct???
need help please.
thanks

if you can find a HEI from an odd fire 231, only thing its need to fire is one hot wire. to kill the motor you just kill the power to the hot wire. But it must be an odd fire model, even fire wont work. it has built in coil
