1987 528 e wil not start

I have a 1987 528E that will not start. When we picked it up six months ago it started. I drove it home, about 100 miles and parked it in the driveway. We finally got the title so I went to start working on it and now it doesn't start. It turns over, but doesn't start. I checked the plug and saw they were old so I replaced them with new Bosch platnums. Any suggestions?

Pull a plug after youve turned it over a few times....wet or dry?.

I'm not sure about the spark. What's the best way to check for spark?
