I recently bought a 94 dodge dakota. #5 rod had gone threw the water jacket, no problem I have a 93 donar. I completed the engin swap from the 93 automatic to the 94 manual using everything for the manual in the 94. Easy stright swap. Ok in the process I broke the crank sensor. Now I have replaced the sensor 5 times and the last one I bought to day from a dodge dealer so I got the oem part right. Now I have replaced the distributer, coil, wires, cap, roter, and even tryed using the pc from the 93. Now the problem I am having is no fire to the plugs, everything else is working fine. Fuel pressure is about 75lbs. Pluss you can smell the fuel in the exaust. Im just not getting any fire please help. The donar engin ran great befor I did the swap.

Did you check the two crank pulleys? If they arent the same part#, your crank sensor may not be picking up a sgnal. Attach a voltmeter to the sensor itself and crank engine, any reading? If not swap the crank pulley. No signal= no spark!
