Ignition Help

1973 International Pick up 3/4 ton, with a 392

Recently (well this last sunday) I drove my truck to get a movie at the rental place. I got the movie, came back out, truck would not start. I have been having some problems with the wiring done by the previous owner. I thought that it wouldn't start because it would not turn over quick enough to expell the excess gas out of the engine. I got it home, finally fixed the slow cranking problem, and I beleive I know why it wouldn't start in the first place. There is no spark being generated by the coil. Over the summer I installed a drop in electronic ignition and am thinking that this may be the problem. The ignition came out of a 304 and I don't know how long it had been in there, do these things really crap out after awhile? It doesn't look that old, but I am getting 12 volts to the coil. Could it possibly be anything else that I might be overlooking? I really don't want to buy another electronic ignition and have it not be the problem.
