Engine Mechanical problem
1989 Dodge Raider 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 79,000 miles

I purchased thsi truck as a project car for nephew, a learning project. It has been setting for 3 years. Have replaced battery, starter, fuel pump, ing. Modgel, spark plugs, wires, coil, rotor button. The engine will turn over, it has fire to the coil but not from the coil to the plugs. We have replaced and cleaned fuel lines, I know it is getting fuel. Any help is appreciated. My local machanics do know what else to do.

Do you have a distributor or direct ignition system-coil packs, or coil on plugs?

So at the distributor your getting spark? Then my bet would be to say your out of time, horibbly, in which case there should be a 13 mm nut on a stud in the head that holds the distributor in position there is some play side to side, adjust that while a helper cranks on the engine you should get some fire that way
