    I have an '89 Ramcharger with a 318 ci fuel injected. It died the other night and I have replaced several parts including the fuel pump relay, distributor cap, and coil and still no spark. I am getting power at the coil on the two leads but there is no spark at the plugs. The truck was running fine until it died, no odd noises or rough idle.

odd,usually if a dodge starts then stalls the ballast resistor is bad,just put a jumper wire across the 2 terminals(white cermic block on the firewall,2 wires) if it runs then replace the ballast only other thought is,have an ammeter? check the back of the gauge,sometimes they burn up and kill the whole system.
Don't quite understand why unplugging the Alt. would matter but check these 2 things anyway.

2000 318 ram van wont start new ecm sensors got spark gas

If you are getting spark to the plugs and fuel spray, and you have compression and the spark is at the right time, you should have explosion.
Is it possible the valve timing is off - timing chain issues ?
Are the new plugs fuel-fouled ?
