Remove the spark plug wires from the spark plug. Be sure to leave the other end attached to the distributer cap. Then remove that spark plug from the cylinder with a spark plug wrench and re-insert the plug into the spark plug wire boot that you previously removed. Have someone turn the inition key as if starting the engine. Stay clear of moving parts etc. while observing the spark plug end. You should see a spark.
