If it's a CD then you need to check that the capacitor is still good and that the trigger is working. It's probably a thyristor trigger. They are not quite the same as a "normal" coil ignition as they run a lot faster.

You have voltage out the end of the HT leads?

Do they arc when you put the lead against the block?

Have you tried Gunson in Hillsborough, they can get lots of hard to find parts.
