93 RRC LWB won't start

Another RRC won't start thread, but I'm at wits end. I can follow directions, but I'm not sure how to troubleshoot.

Last fall I had the coil, distributor, amp module, cap and rotor replaced by a rover tech in Madison WI. It ran for a couple of weeks and then wouldn't start again. It died in December.

I purchased new plugs (Bosch Platinum gapped .035), wires and a new battery and installed them today since finally had the time and some decent weather. Wisconsin winter was brutal this year.

It still won't start. It acts like it wants to, but it just won't fire. The fuel pump is working properly as I can smell fuel after trying a few times. I let it sit a bit between attempts in case I flooded it.

How can I test if I'm getting spark?

Thanks for any help that can be given.

If you spray starter fluid in the intake
And you have spark it should fire
Weather your getting fuel or not
I'd go with cap and rotor
Or check wires between spark mod and coil
New is good
But if you have spark to the plugs
The timing is right
You spray stater fluid in the intake
It will
I've had bad rotor buttons and caps
I've seen here several posts where the wires
From the spark modulator to the coil
Were bad
My coil went out just a few months
Any way
I'm just feelin like giving imput
