When it stalled and could not be started, you need to find out what is missing.

Well I disconnected the exhaust and one sensor at a time. Still did not help.I bought a new distributor. And still the same problem. Car ran great at a idle for 20 minutes than died. Any other ideas still no check engine light

When it could not start, did you find out what is missing?

Just tested all the sensors. All came up good.I am starting to think the new distributor could have fried. Why am I going through distributors. Compression is 150 all cylinders.55 lbs fuel pressure spark in all cylinders and all the sensors test good, car is running worst idels rough at 200 rpm for about a minute than dies.

Did you test if it is spark that is missing or is it fuel that was not present when it could not start?
