ENGINE WONT START

My ignition control module and ignition coil has been replaced and the engine will not start. The starter is turning over but the engine will not start. I replaced the distributor rotary cap and module and the engine still will not start. It appears that I am not getting fire from the ignition coil even after I replaced it. Something is preventing the engine from turning over to start. The starter, battery, and relays connecting the ignition control module appears to be working fine. But I am not getting fire from the ignition coil. The engine just turns over and not start. I dont know what to do next. Please help!

Use a Digital Volt/Ohm meter and measure its resistances-
