It died while running, horrible sulfur like smell after the car stopped. Cranks but wont start. Replaced the battery, alternator is good, replaced the ignition coil, modulator, condenser, distributor cap, rotor. Have no spark at no. 1 spark plug. Has power up to the distributor cap for sure.(Did not replace the pick up coil).

Check the ignition module

That would be the modulator that we replaced already.

Have no spark on no.1 what about the rest? Still no spark-check and test the distributor pick-up coil resistances and for short to ground
