No problem, can you verify there is no spark at none of the cylinder spark plugs? Generally, if you have power to your distributor from your ignition coil and no spark to any cylinders, I would check the contacts inside the distributor cap and distributor rotor, if there is no power to your distributor from your ignition coil, and you have 12volts to your ignition coil, you may have an open or short in your ignition coil. In his case , resistance testing your coil may show open or short.
