pull out a couple plugs and put them in the spark plug wires. lay the plug on block and crank the motor. look for the spark at the plug gaps. if you have good white-blue spark o.k., if not, then maybe the coil is bad, assuming the wires are good, and the point wire is not grounded out, and the point is closing and making good contact.

We finally got it running, we switched the spark plug wires around and just kept messing with them and it finally came alive after sitting for 8 months. I feel kind of stupid trying all the other things that I did and not even thinking about the plug wires.
Thanks for all your advice though.

In addition to what has already been said, be sure you have the proper voltage on the primary side of the coil (wire from battery or ign switch). Remove spark plugs and crank engine. If no spark, keep working your way through the coil and distributor until you find the gremlin.
