The negative coil wire goes to the distributor and points, when you spliced in the 3 inches of wire is the new wire of the same gauge? you can add wire that has too much resistance and you then interrupt the flow of electricity.
Make sure it is the same gauge, and then test your splice with an ohm -meter or test light, connections can be bad as crimped connectors are not always reliable, crimped and soldered is correct.
If that is all right follow,..... Pontiac Jim's advice. Gas and spark.
PS on any no start condition I always put gas in the tank a few gallons if you can, rather than go by the sending gauge could be wrong or even thinking you filled it as pump at station kept clicking off,....vapors do that as well.
sounds like you added resistance to the negative coil wire and dropped that already ballasted wire from 9 volts to like 6 volts and it won't fire
