    check for fuel

    IF you have fuel, then check for spark at the spark plug by putting a timing light on any plug wire and watch for light flash while cranking. Or, get an old spark plug and remove a wire and put the old plug in it and ground it to the engine while someone cranks and watch for spark.

    If their is no spark, the ignition module is probably bad. It is where the points would be if it wasn't HEI.
