Electrical problem
1990 Lincoln Mark VII V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 128, 00 miles

No spark, power going in to the distributor but none coming out. The TFI Module on the distributor has been replaced. The coil checks out. Everything in the distributor looks good. I know, it's easy to say replace the distributor but could it possibly be the computer(cpm) or something else. Any help here would be appreciated. Thanks

The Pickup sensor in the distributor is probably bad. It happened to me. Replace the distributor or rebuild it your self by removing the unit and removing the gear from the shaft. Then remove the inside shaft from the housing and replace the pickup sensor)cheap part). Take car to a mechanic to get that car timming set. Keep track of every distributor position(housing, shaft, gear)
