2000 Prelude won't start!

So long story short, I picked up a 2000 base prelude last month that had sat for a year while the previous owner was deployed across seas. The car ran fine up until it was parked last. A friend and I have done just about everything to get it up and running. Oil change, new fuel filter, new fuel, etc... Problem is it just won't fire up. Upon checking for spark, it appears that it isn't consistently firing. My assumption is it's either the ignitor or the entire distributor. Has anybody here ever encountered a similar issue?

Check this out dude.
The FINAL "problem starting engine" thread!!!!!
Maybe pull off the distributor cap and check if the rotor is fried. Good luck bro!

i would get a dis from the junk yard that you might assume is good and swap it out and see what happens then if you get a good spark then there you go but yea whenever a car sits like that you have to assume everything is bad for example any liquid obviously you already know that and anything to do with the ignition system like the dis and the battery i would probly change the plugs and wires while i was at it as long a money wasn't too much of a problem... so there you go, i love working on cars just not as a career.
