test a coil??
Is there a way to test a coil to see if it is bad? What voltage should you get from the coil?
OK so the first test would be the same as turning the key on and removing the wire from the top of the distributor cap and putting it near a ground, which I did with coil and a spare coil and nothing. The second I am guessing that by testing the Ohms, if it is a bad coil it will not read any Ohms?
Your Haynes or Chilton's manual should have the acceptable readings to see if it's bad or not. If you don't know you can take it to Autozone and they'll test it for free, probably even try to sell you a new one if its bad.
OK so the Ohm level on the coil is 1.5 but still no spark. Took the CPS off, all looks well, cleaned it off and reinstalled. Still nothing, is there a way to check the CPS to see if it is bad?

No buddies with this motor, I have a spare 95 but the connectors are different on the the newer ones. I looked through the Haynes manual and found a test for the CPS, not sure I understand it but will try it.
