16v Won't Start

Hi, I can't seem to get my 86 190E 16v to start. It turns over and the timing chain is fine. It's getting fuel and spark, but I read here: 190E 16v won't start that the ignition coil can show fire but under compression not fire. Is there anyway I can test the coil?

Also, I broke the hose circled in the picture below, and I completely removed it. Do I need that hose for the car to start even though it wasn't starting before I broke the hose?

Or, does anyone have some other ideas as to why my car wont start?
