    Spark at the plug wire? If good strong spark going to plugs and you add fuel it should fire up, IF
    compression is good. If it is not how about the timing belt??

    If you have "good" spark at the plugs then forget about any other part of the ignition system!!
    It is working. All you need to get any engine running is proper spark, fresh fuel, "on time" compression and a clear exhaust path!
