DODGE RAMCHARGER SPARK PROBLEM

1985 Dodge Ramcharger • 21,300 miles

Replaced fuel pump, then ran great. Then wouldn't not turn over, checked battery, replaced it, ran great. 4 days would not turn over, checked alternator, replaced new. Now it will not fire but turn over great. Primed it several to start and nothing, acts like no gas gets to carb.

Have you inspected your cap and rotor etc for cracking where carbon build up etc?

Also if the rotor in the distributor spins while cranking the engine?

Cap is in good condition, rotor good and spins while cranking. Spark going into coil no spark from coil to dist. Replaced coil and still same. No spark coming out of to dist.

So you have blue spark that comes off the coil wire that goes to the distributor?
