Either no power going into it or a dead coil.
Is the coil getting power?
Do you have an ohm meter?
Primary winding resistance 0.76 - 0.84 ohm
Secondary winding resistance 4860 - 5940ohm

yes, multi meter should read ohms as well as volts etc.

Also could be faulty ignition module or the hall effect part of the distributor - both fairly common problem items - do a search on this forum and you'll find plenty of references.
Good Luck.
