No power from distributor to spark plugs...

I bougth the distributor 7 years ago, but since the hot rod building took more time than expected (surprise, I guess..) It hasn't been any test start attempt before now.

-12 volt power in to the distributor is checked. Both with the ignition key "on" and also with the starter engine engaging.
-The spark plug wires are changed once, so I presume those are ok.
-The spark plugs are brand new.
The distributor is a Flame Thrower D1000 (vacuum advance, coil in cap)

Suggestions? I'm a newbee, so don't rule out the stupid and obvious things...
