Engine Mechanical problem

Just bought pickup replaced wire cap roter plugs had problem driving for a while and would stall out. Did check at coil for spark none. Waited 10 15 min started up drove 3 to 5 miles same thing >>So change coil thinking bad coil. Problem solved Nope same crap drive for awhile stall out no spark at coil wait awhile starts up. Any help would be great also Tried to time with timing light could not get enough adjustment on distributer so moved plug wire one hole over didnt work not sure why cannot get timing set 7 degree before tdc have you heard of this? I have heard worn bushing on end of distributor is this so and can it be fixed or do I need whole new distributor. Also if I need a whole new dist.I have heard of replacing with electronic ignition distributor and the getting rid of computer box on fender wall ecm I believe it is called not sure is this possible and is it difficult to do?
