If you have no spark it could be a bad coil, ignition module or distributor pickup unit. Grab your test light, turn on the key and check to see if you have power on the ignition coil positive side, if not check for a blown fuse, if you do then unhook the negative wire from the coil and put one end of the test light on that wire and the other on battery positive, now crank the engine and see if you get a flashing light, if you do replace the coil, if not replace the ignition module. Note: I might be cheaper to replace the entire distributor than just the ignition module, have your parts store check it both ways. All of the above is of course figuring that all of the wiring is in good shape.
