Rheem Clasic 90 Burners not igniting

Hi- I have a Rheen Classic 90 (9years old) that has been working flawlessly. Up unit an hour ago I notice the tempurature in the house had dropped to 62.
I took off the front panel and restarted the furnace. Upon doing do I noticed the the ignitor (which looks like a piezo-electric lighter) would spark but the burners would fail to ignite. I am a complete novice to these things and would welcome any suggestions.

I thought Rheem used a hot surface (glow coil) ignition system but maybe some use spark. Does the gas valve have a small (1/4") aluminum line coming from it & going to the burner area where the spark happens? Do you have a voltmeter & know how to use it?
