Some of the parts you got could have been bad. might want to return them for new ones and see what happens. Did it start before you did the tune up?

Where do you not have spark? Do you have spark at the distributor, and not at the plugs, or do you not have any spark anywhere?

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

all i know is that he took a plug off the distributor and was not getting a spark there, i was told it might be the "coil" fuse in the fuse box behind the glove box, #11, so i'll check that when i get back home

i appreciate your help on this,
