No spark

I have a 41 ford with a 53 flat head engine with a Mallory distributor and I can not get any spark. Any help out there?

Back in 67 I had a 41 Ford with a 53 Merc flatty and a Mallory dizzy. It ran but before I got it on the road the dizzy failed. This was when I was young and knew nothing. I took it to my local hangout gas/garage station and they ended up putting a stock dizzy in.
Hope you can get yours running.
