You will need two people to check this:
On the coil there is a wire that go's to your distributor, you will need to remove the wire from where it joins the distributor ( it should be directly in the center of the distributor ) fit it on to the end of a screw driver hold the screw driver by the handle and the metal part of the screw driver about a quarter inch away from a clean spot on the engine ( scrape a small section with the screw driver if necessary so it is shiny ) as I mentioned before, hold only the screw driver handle and have someone try and start the car. As they are trying to start it look to see if you can see any spark jumping between the screw driver and the engine. Don't worry with this wire off of the distributor the car will not start. If there is spark then replace the wire on the distributor and remove one from one of the spark plugs and repeat this same procedure. Be very carefull not to touch the blade of the screw driver while someone is trying to start the car as you will get a pretty good shock if you are getting spark. It won't hurt you but it will really get your attention. When you try the one from the spark plug the car can start at this point so b aware of any moving parts that you don't get a shirt or jacket caught.
