This may be way more then you want, but my Ignition Troubleshooting Procedure has a systematic approach which could diagnose the cause of no spark, give it a try, all it takes is a test lamp for the most part.

Over the years I have learned the cheapest and easiest way to check if the point are good baring any shorts if to remove the ignition side wire off the coil then turn the switch on and touch the wire to the coil with the points closed. If you have a spark the points are good or you have a short if no spark the points need to be worked on. No test light needed no tools for the most part needed and it works 99% of the time. You know I do not even own a test light and my meter almost never goes to the shop and you know I know how to work more then just the common run of the mill cheap meter

Yep, Ive tested a ton of things over many years on the farm and in the shop without a test lamp also, but a test lamp is one of the most often and easy used and cheap to buy tools in my shop and I wont be without one. Heck I have them in shop and home and truck and RV and you can buy them so cheap. You ought to get one Rich, they are so darn handy even if YES you can test things other ways.

Take care down your way

I have had a few test lights over the years and they always seem to get lost or broken so I just gave up on them and use the old spark test and that always seems to work just fine
