I got this el falcon in the shed im slowly restoring anyway.Driving it around the yard as soon as it hits operating temperature...no spark, cant start it,leave it till its cool, do the same thing drive it around then when its at operating temp no spark again.Got me buggered what it is.There is an audible beep however ,3 short beeps which might be my fuel being incredibly low or any amount of things seen as this car is only 80% assembled. Any ideas anyone?

i might change the coil and tfi.is the many problem related to the hall effect sensor in the dizzy? i had a simular problem before were i changed both TFI and coil in a different el. and it didn't work then swapped a spare dizzy over with the same brand new everything and it was fine.
