Before you get too carried away.
One of the most common things I see folks do is forget to check the starter and related components before changing coils and ignition boxes and fuel related parts or components.
The first thing you need to do is put a volt meter on the positive and negative battery posts now have someone turn the engine over, if the battery drops below 9.6 volts the engine is not turning over fast enough to fire and the ignition circuit is not getting enough voltage to fire.
If this is the case you need to isolate which component is casing the problem by load testing or voltage drop testing them, ie is it a bad starter or a bad negative or positive battery starter cable or is it a bad solenoid, or could it just be a weak or bad battery?
If it started and ran before most likely all the electrical components like the ignition box and coil are ok they don't often go bad just sitting there.
