Never connect the coil wires together. That is a great way to burn out the ignition module. This is not the same system used since 1950, not even close. It has electronic ignition, not points. It has temp controlled vacuum solenoids that control fuel mixture at certain situations.
Whenever you are testing for power you need to use an LED type test light. Don't look for sparks.
Your first step here is to use a spark tester and test for spark at the plug end of the wire. If none found, test at the coil wire. If none found, test for power supply at the coil with a test light. If you have power there, then you need to test for ground pulse using a noid light.
