How to test my coil pulse

Two days ago my '88 spider ran like a champ. Went out today and wouldn't fire up. Looks like I am getting no spark to the plugs.
Suddenly! Just on her own! I want to put my test lamp on the coil to see if I get a "pulse" when cranking, but I can't remember the procedure. Across the plus and minus? Or plus to chassis? Or.....

I am baffled. She was running soooooo good.
