Remove the dist cap and look at the 'internal' coil to see if it's sparking around the coil body while helper cranks engine, if so go ahead and replace the dist assembly. Also check that distributor IS rotating!!

Make sure your coil is working first; It has to send spark to the distributor, before it gets to the plugs.
timing belt ok?
