Ok. Well if you've tried the starting fluid or carb cleaner or fuel in the throttle body then we know its not a fuel issue. When you saw spark at the plug was it a little tick or a nice bright flash. It should be the flash. That could mean the coil. Also take the cap off the distributor and then take the plate off that's under the rotor and the rotor. Look at the inside parts of the distributor. Are they rusty? This can also play a big role in misfires of lack of spark. Take all the plugs out and rent a compression tester at the local parts store. It just crews in the plug hole and then you turn it over to get your psi of compression on the gauge, it should be 150 with no more than 30% variation between any two cylinders. Look under the cap at the points, are they green and fuzzy looking? And check for vacuum lines going to the distributor for a possible leak or break. The big plug under the dist cap is for the ignition control module. They sometimes like to break wires at the plug. Check that too.
