    take ur spark plugs out, put them in the plug/wire thats runs to the dizzy, ground the spark plug and see it its sparks when u try to crank it.

    one at a time..thats for checking spark. ne other methods or areas to test the dizzy in i dunno

    Ummm....if its sparking the dizzy can't be broken, thats whats generating the sparks! (Well the coil is generation the sparks, the Dizzy is timing them correctly.)
