That can be difficult to track down. The only safe way without having to replace every igntion part would be to use an ohm meter and a repair manual. In the repair manual ther will be test procedures for a no spark condition that will narrow down the problem. Be carefull not to just replace parts. A bad component can cause the failer of another and it can get expensive if you guess wrong.
Here is a link to ther manual if you do not already have one
