distributor problem

1990 jeep yj 4.2. i was timing the distributor and was having to take it in and out a couple of times for retiming and one of the times the ignition key was left on and pulling out the distributor on that time the distributor sparked cause it hit up against the engine block and of course shocked me but also now i don't have any spark.

Did i just fry my ignition module or is there a fuse to replace? jeep will crank over but no spark. and the spark wasen't very big and didn't last long and there isn't any burns anywhere or melted wires and the ignition module didn't get hot so idk if i burned something up thats major or if its a fuse.

I know i can just start pulling them out and check but i just did this a bit ago and just thought i ask. im done working on it today anyways.
What do women and Jeeps have in common? The harder you ride them the more money it's going to cost you.

check your fuses, you might have fried your brain.
