.3v on point side of coil, with points closed, is good. However, on the other side of the coil, even with points closed, you should have near battery volltage. You can run a quick test by running a wire from battery to the power side of the coil. Make sure all the connections from the power side of the points are clean and tight to battery. For testing, you don't even need the condenser. If you have it out, leave it out until you get the spark working. Remember, battery side of coil should ALWAYS be battery, point side of coil should be battery with points open, near gnd with points closed.
