1987 Lincoln Town Car V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic

hey guys, I have a 87 lincoln town car. First, the car was idling up and down, then would stall and start back up. So we put a new coil on it and it started up and ran for a whole day. Then it rained, and the next morning it started up and we drove it not 5min, it quit on us. And hasnt started since, it has been 3-5 days, it just cranks but will not turns over. We replaced the ignition control module, the distributor cap and rotor, coil. The thing is we use a test light, and we are not gettin any spark to the spark plugs.
Do you

Get a repair manual and a multimeter look up the resistances for the distributor pick coil and also check it for short to ground-
