Hello, Welcome to Just Answer.

The ignition supply to the coil and distributor comes via the computer. On terminal number 8. If you find no power on this wire then you might not have power from the control relay. This relay is on the fusebox. The power from the relay should be on terminal number 14 on the computer.

The computer is under the plastic cover in the engine bay.

If you need more information please do not hesitate to ask.
