Fuse? Did you check them before you started replacing parts? A weak coil can also be the culprit.
thanks, ya all the fuses are good. and the coil doesnt have the ohms the book says it should. so im trying to find a good used one. we also noticed the ignition switch will only turn the engine if pressing down on the key. could this also affect the spark? thanks for the help!

You mentioned that you got some spark from the coil. Were you cranking the engine when doing this test or did you hook the coil up to the batter and disconnect it, to make it spark?
We disconnected it and hooked it to the battery. could the ignition send signal to crank but not the coil?

Have you checked to see if the distributor rotor is turning when you crank the engine? (As in: Is the timing belt broken and the disty is not turning...)
