[200q20v] Help! 200 20V No start!

Latest update.  Spend about 5 hours messing around with the car last
night, most of the time spent just trying to get to the distributor. 
I.E., removing the intake manifold.

Once I got to it, I confirmed that the rotor was turning, so there is no
broken gear.  I measured the resistance between the rotor tip and center,
read between 1700-1900, Bentley calls for 1K.

Here is the kicker, when I took a voltage reading between the #1 and #3
pins in the Hall Sender connector (unplugged from the distributor), with
the ignition on, I did not get any voltage, I should have see 9V.  So,
looks like a broken wire somewhere.

I have taken the low road, and had the car brought to my mechanic <*hangs
head in shame*>, to have him finish up the job.  I was just not looking
forward to figuring out where the problem is, and I need my car.

I will let everyone know what the problems is, as soon as I know.  Thanks
for all your help so far!
