Pull the large wire from the ignition coil and put a phillips screwdriver into the end of the wire and hold it about a 1/8 of a inch away from the engine block, and have someone turn the engine over. If you don't see a spark it means that your problem is electrical. That could mean a number of different things like bad ignition wires, bad ground, bad coil, worn out distributer cap, and possibly more. You have to go threw all these procedures to find the culprit. It could be a frayed wire.
