Voltage at the coil is good, the coil receives voltage from the computer and that charged the primary windings inside the coil creating a magnetic field around the primary and secondary windings. once the voltage is dropped from the coil the magnetic field is dropped which creates voltage inside the secondary windings which is discharged as a spark.Have you had your coil tested? Do you have an ohm meter?

Pull the coil and test resistance from the power to the ground where the computer plugs in and test resistance between the distributor lug and the metal frame around the coil.
