D110 no start,need quick help

Friend broke his coil wire the other day and replaced it tonight with no start, here is his email excerpt;

" I told you I broke my coil wire, well KB grabbed me a new wire set at AB and I put just the new coil wire on and it won't start. I pulled the wire and it is not getting any spark. I tried another plug wire just to see and nothing. I checked the power at the coil and I have 12v on both side and when I checked continuity the circuit between is always complete. I don't know enough about the distributors in this thing, but it doesn't look like points. Is the circuit staying closed and not building up a charge in the coil? And why would this happen it can't be connected to the wire, is it just a weird coincidence?"

I noticed that it looked like the condensor was not hooked up when we were bleeding the clutch the o ther day, maybe he cooked the points because of this? We need to get this thing to the Rally this weekend, please give some help.

Check the wiring connections at the coil (not the coil wire itself but the smaller wires that run the coil and send signal to the ECU)
They get cruddy and if they got bumped, or disconnected doing other work it will kill the spark.

I found it, one of the wires had pulled out of the connector at the distributor.
