    Sounds like you shorted something out in the Distrubtor. If you wern't on the other side of the state, I'd be happy to come over and take a look.

    Check your fuses you may have blown the ign fuse.
    Do you have points? or a module? If you have module it may be fried. Many auto parts stores will test them for free if you pull it out.
