If your (inductive pickup?) timing light shows a spark going into the 
distributor, but none coming out, then you have to look to see where it is 
going. There's either a spark track down the side of the cap or a puncture thru 
the rotor. The only way to check for a punctured rotor is to eliminate all the 
other possibilities and then try replacing the rotor.   

Make sure you check all 4 SP wires for outgoing spark, and make sure the inside 
of the cap is dry.
