VW Cabriolet won't start

My VW Cabriolet 1988 won't start. No spark even through cap rotor and coil all check out!

does the distributor shaft/rotor spin while cranking? if not, check for a broken timing belt. might want to be sure it's in time also.

to check triggering you can place a test light from coil negative to ground and you should get a flashing light while cranking.
