You can do a basic check with an ohmmeter.  With the dizzy out of the car
you can power the thing up and verify that the sense output goes from high
to low as the rotor spins ... 

Should I need to reclaim my non-functional distributor I will attempt a
repair before replacing ... can't break it any worse is my motto ...

Just what I was afraid of.
Is there a way to test the hall sender when the distributor is out of
the car, I have a spare one from
another engine?
