Caterpillar GP30:
no spark

I've just inherited the job of fixing one of our lift trucks, it's currently not starting, and before it lost spark it would not stay running without keeping it off idle via the accel pedal.
I believe the problem lies in either the coil or the module in the distributor. I don't know how to test the module and wonder how common they are to failure. This truck has 20k hrs on it.

It's a 7AM serial.

Any other thoughts ? Or places to look for a service manual ?
