Ok changed plugs and leads, has fuel no spark. Does that mean replace coil?

Thanks.

one way is to test the coil using the lead from the coil to the dizzy, if there is power coming from it then its not that

have you done any work to the car lately? i have noticed when someone replaced a head gasket or something around there the dizzy seems to stuff up

Thanks for the help guys, threw on a new coil today and it fired right up. Taking it to the mechanic on Friday to get the discs machined so will get him to have a sticky beak too. I love happy endings.

glad to hear buddy. i hope you didnt tighted the bolts on it too tight as the metal expands under heat and it cracks the coil. i normally only put the top bolt on due to this.
