It sounds to me like you replaced everything but the most likely cause of a stall while driving...The crank sensor.

SOURCE: how do i replace distributor pickup assembly is a distributor on a 93 mercury topaz

Yes you would remove the distributor and then remove the center shaft.
If you do it be sure and mark the position of the distributor before you take it out of the engine.

Why wont it spark


Someone needs to check for voltage at the coil and the distributor.
The pickup coil in the distributor tells the coil when to fire.
If you are getting spark at the coil tower but not at the plugs, check the cap and rotor.
