I'll work at this more next weekend. Sorry if I sound like a retard - never done any electrical troubleshooting.. all new to me.
Gotta be systematic. Like Auzzie Steve said earlier. You gotta make sure all components of the ignition are working. Make sure coil is getting voltage, make sure pulser/trigger is sending a signal etc. Systematic process of elimination.

And still you've gotta check that plug and cap. If there's no place for the spark to go, either due to bad cap or internally shorted plug, or the high voltage wire is shorting to ground before the inductive clamp, there won't be a charge for the inductive timing light to read..
