You will have a ballast resistor then too. Check for 12 volts on both sides of that. If you still have the dual resistor, check for voltage on all four terminals when the ignition switch is in the "run" position.
If the voltages are good, remove the coil wire from the center of the distributor cap and hold it close to a metal part of the engine and body. Watch to see if you get a single spark when a helper turns the ignition switch off. If you do, the module may be shorted.
You must also check the pickup coil in the distributor for continuity. You did not list which engine you have so I don't know if you have one or two pickup assemblies. Regardless, they are both checked the same way with an ohm meter. Typical resistance is around 500 to 900 ohms. The exact value is not important. What you are looking for is one that is open, meaning reading infinite resistance.
