NO SPARK BUT GETTING FUEL

1988 Dodge Dakota

I have a 1988 dodge dakota I can get the engine to rotate but will not start. I am getting fuel to the throttle body and I have replaced the coil, pickup coil, ran all new grounds, replaced distributor cap, rotor button. I ran several tests to determine that I am getting power from computer to coil and from coil to distributor but no spark from distributor what could be the problem?&Quot;
should I try replacing the distributor itself or could it be another problem?

Did you replace the spark plug wires? I had the same problem, checked the resistance of the wires and they were at 3,000 ohms, right at the limit of the range. Replaced the wires, rotor, cap and it started up fine. If you're getting spark to the distributor, then its the wires or plugs.

I changed the wires but not the plugs I will try that.
