Not a lot to go on, but the major suspects for "no spark" are few. Read over
the whole "Starting/Running problems" section at
http://tegger.com/hondafaq/faq.html#startrun for a good run-down. I favor
the ignitor having failed (because it happened to my daughter's '93 Accord),
but I wouldn't rule out the coil.

=================================

You won't get spark if the timing belt broke. Easy to check by looking
into the oil filler hole and spin the engine.

My experience in this matter is all detroit steel, but every time this has
happened to me, it was a coil.

The ignitor seems to be sort of common for the Hondas, so I would inspect
both...

When you crank, does the tach needle jiggle a teeny tiny bit?

If NOT, the igniter is shot.

If YES, the coil is bad.

Does TeGGeR's test of watching the tach show the tach jumping or just lying
there?

Also, see where this leads you:

Did you get it fixed. I just saw this question. I had the same
problem. It is a simple fix but if it is working no need to go into
it.

i did temporarly get it fixed. i bought another distridutor from ebay
and put it in and the car started right up. i drove it about 3 miles
and it ran great! pulled in the driveway, reached for the key to shut
it off, before i even touched the key it died and would not restart. i
check for spark....no spark again! please let me know what you did for
your car!! Thank you thank you

How old are the plug wires? A new set might just be what you need.
