No spark at all?
Could be a failing/failed coil... An ignition relay/wiring fault ? Not sure, more info would be great buddy...

Dizzy's timing could have slipped... Or maybe check inside the distributor for cap faults.
If you find nothing sinister but still suspect the dizzy, then the Advance/Retard mech may have failed !
