Default why am i not getting a spark?

i put the msd external coil and cap on my car and it road for 2 days then died on me. so i took it all off and put the internal coil and stock cap back on. tried to start it up and nothing. then i checked the plugs by plugging one into one of the spark plug wires and touching a ground with it and it didn't spark...could it be the plug, the wire or is th dizzy just fucked up.

No, You mean the Ignitor, not the Ignition Coil.

This would be the first thing I would look into.

i tried...i couldn't get it off lol. the screws were so rusted that they started to strip so i backed off of them. i might just get a new dizzy. but is there any way i can check the wires to see if they are bad?
