A standard ignition coil normally generate about 15,000 - 25,000 volt depending the requirement to spark the spark plugs. The input volt should be 12 volt but the amperage should run about 400Va.
So now what is the question?

It could be a bad brake pressure sender. It should be on the master cylinder. It also could be a bad connection to it so try cleaning up the contacts.

The fact that it's turning over indicates that the start relay is good.Couple of quick questions to help me out please,if the 2 things at the bottom do not show anything.You drove it all the way home and then when you went to restart it would not start?I think that's what you mean.What do you mean that the interior battery light is off?How much spark did you see at alternator?The fact that your battery turns over good and strong should mean your alternator is okay.How far did you drive home from the shop?Normally,because of the ethanol used now,the gas will junk out if not run at all if it sits for about 6 weeks.It seems that yours hasn't junked but is still a possibility.

Do you have carbeurator or fuel injection?

You should try to jump start for at least 2 tries.If that doesn't work and you have a carb,pour a little gas into the carb and see if it fires.If you still get nothing,then I would like you to answer the questions I posted.Good luck,Greg

It should be on the left front (driver's side). Check the intake manifold, if it's factory each cylinder should be listed.

Try putting a little gas in the top of the carb. Then try to start, if it starts then it's a fuel problem, clogged filter, lines, carb or fuel pump. If it doen't start with the gas then check for spark, disconnect a spark plug wire put on a spare spark plug, ground plug threads to motor and have someone turn over motor. You should see a spark between plug and electrode. Also you could check compression of engine, rings could be siezed and no compression will mean no start. If low or no compression, pour wd-40 or other lubricant into spark plug holes and let sit for a couple of days. Hopefully that would unsieze rings.

Save yourself a lot of time and money and go online and make a Google Search.
Try first typing in just a description of the needed parts. If you don't get the results that you want,
then type in Auto Salvage Parts, and follow the prompts.

Does that have the ceramic ballast on firewall as well? If so, use a jumper wire from terminal to terminal to see if that helps. (ceramic block about 1-1/2" x 3") usually was located on passenger area firewall behind engine.

The firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. I'll try to find a pic of the distributor layout although number "1" is usually embossed on the cap or on the distributor body.

Hope this helps!

Check your pcv valve and breather, they could be clogged causing excess crankcase pressure.
