Check the pick up coil in the distributer.

I just sold a 1990 model that was doing the same thing. I replaced the coil, ignition module, and pick up coil but still no spark. After troubleshooting like I should have done in the first place I found out the computer was bad. Ordered a new one from Advance Auto Parts and installed it. Problem solved. The book I used to troubleshoot was a Haynes or Hayes something like that. When I sold the truck I sent the book with it. Hope this helps.

If you have power to the coil, but no spark at the plugs I would replace the coil.
