Major Issue need help asap

ok i was driving to work last night and my engine just stops working i first thought it was the timing belt but that wasn't not it. so i checked the distributor and the piece at the very back had been sheared off, so i replaced the whole distributor , cap, and rotor. still would not fire. so next hey it might be my coil changed that to a msd blaster 3 from a msd blaster ss, still nothing. so next the ignition, which is a mds scl ignition, tried to by pass that and nothing.
1 we check check to see if was getting juice all the way up to the the outlet of the coil. is this normal?
2 so what am i missing?
3 should i just get the stock ignition to make it fire?
4 what is the process of the starting? (for ex. battery to the starter to the ignition box to the coil to the distributor to the plugs????)
and sofar i missed 2 night in a row work and maybe school tomorrow so i need help asap
thanks in advance

What do you mean you checked for juice in the outlet? You got a reading?

when you turn your key on do you hear your fuel pump turning on.. check your spark.. if you have spark and its turning over then your not getting fuel.. listen for your fuel pump when you turn the key to the on position youll hear a humming sound if its working.. its pretty audible.

Hey if your timing is off you will not get any sparks.
