There are no actual way of testing distributors. Measuring the various pickup coils etc are all you can do. Is the ignition coil good?
If you have a replacement distributor ready, you need no tinstall onto engine. Just plug it into the socket and ground the distributor and manually crank the rotor. If it provides sparks it is good.
I would do this than go over the hassle of testing the distributor.
