    Andy,

    You can check the ignition first it's really easy.

    I just went through this myself and had to change the pickup on my distributor. I checked it all first to rule out everything but that. Only had about 30 passes on this distributor when it failed.

    Andy, I had the same problem a couple weeks ago. The link Curtis gave you is the same way I figured mine out. I am connected to the ignition hot wire, no coil spark. Traced it to a bad connection at the MSD/ignition wire connection. Was up and running again in about 30 minutes.
    I hope you have it your running now, even if it is a Ford :!:
