[urq] Disregard last post.....no spark!

The WX has quite a few things that need to work correctly to get spark.  If
the window in the dizzy is out of time relating to crank TDC you will have
no spark.  This can happen if the cam belt slips a tooth or two ... verify
TDC at crank and cam are matched.  You need to have the Hall Sender signal
working, the flywheel signals ... the ECU and coil driver can also lead to
no spark.  I'm not so sure I'd just assume it is the ignition coil.  

If the car was running and stopped running, you may not want to change
things like the rotation of the distributor unless you know it is now wrong.

Okay, the better half just arrived and looks like I've got no spark from the
coil.....a new coil is a couple days away, and will replace the cap and
rotor while I'm at it.  Any other thoughts before I replace all that?  Is
there something I should check out regarding power to the coil?  

If not, I'll update on Tuesday once I get another coil.  Any other ideas
always appreciated.....
