My Toyota ae110 cranks but wont start. Not getting any spark. Saw a comment about checking the +B terminal. Check that but see nothing running there. How do I go about getting the problem sorted?

I am attaching the testing that we need to run through to find this issue but the common part that causes no spark is the igniter. Let's run through this testing and see what turns up.

Let us know what questions you have but I am sure we will find the issue with this testing. Thanks

I tried two other distributors and still have the same problem. Car is cranking strong just would not get the spark to start.

Okay. Were you able to run through the testing that I attached below? Did the distributor that you tried have the ignition coil installed on it or did you have to swap it?

If all this checks out then I suspect the crank sensor is the issue. I attached the replacement process below for this.
