Default Cruiser down

Hi gang , help me get this up and running. I just did a water pump and belt. I am confident the timing marks are set right but is there a way to check it without tearing the whole thing apart again?
I am not getting spark from the coil. I checked all the wiring connections and the fuses. I'm puzzled.

True that. This is why I advocate to take detailed pics before you button one up. All you need do then is refer back to the pic to rule it out and move on to the next thing. I also started mine before putting it back together.

Congrats on doing the timing belt yourself and that's the only issue you had!

If you look at the top right corner of each post, it will tell you when the person posting joined the forum.
