pull the coil wire out of the dizzy. disconnect the + as well. Turn on ignition so that the lead becomes "hot". Now carefully angle the coil wire towards your manifold and hold it approx. 1/2 inch away while touching the lead back to the + terminal. You should get a spark jump. If you have a multi meter you can test the coil by touching the leads to the two posts. You should get high resistance but not an open.
Should either of these tests fail your coil is likely baked. If they work then it's time to take a deeper look at the dizzy and see if it's burnt.
