No spark

Hi people

i know this has been asked a lot but i ve tried most of the solutions i.e change the spark plugs and leads checked the distributor cap no cracks on it looks in good nick

i ve just looked at the diustributor itself and the casing just below the rotor arm is all broken basically its in pieces just wondering if that might cause the problem the car has been parked up for a about 5 months

any help much appreciated need car on the road just got a new ignition barrel on it and now it aint starting

If the distributor is damaged,then this would be the first thing that I'd replace.

It is also worth seeing if you have a spark from the king lead out of the coil ,check the rotor arm for continuity and also that the distributer is actually turning as you wind the engine over on the starter.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
