there will be lots of advice forthcoming on a no spark spider, but first make sure you car is not fitted with an immobiliser.
If you are certain it hasn't, then the first thing I would check is the cranking voltage.
The voltage on a good battery should be about 12.5 volts.....
Then with voltmeter still connected, ask someone to crank the starter (make sure it is in neutral, of course)......now you should be reading about 10.5 volts.......
