Simple, just disconnect the negative side of the coil and hook a test light to that wire and a hot lead then crank the engine and watch for a pulsing light, if no light you have either a bad ignition module or distributor pickup, if you get a pulsating light then the coil is defective.

assure the ground connection is solid goin' to the motor block and chassis...use a wire brush and make sure the battery is newer then five years old~
