Question about Cars & Trucks
I would be checking the firing order of the HT leads as you may have crossed leads which will cause the problems.. Ensure that the HT leads do not touch each other as that will cause miss fires as the current jumps across the leads and fires the wrong plug. There are spacer clamps available to keep the wires apart. The problem is most evident on el cheapo plug leads as there is less insulating properties as to the dearer ones.

You need a new distributor, these are a common problem and available new at just about any auto parts store. There are three inductive pick-up coils, a module and coil inside this thing and they go bad. You could try changing the module first, but they are non returnable, if it doesn't fix it, you're stuck. If it does fix it, chances are, the pickup coils are on their way out soon.
I would just get the whole new unit, about a 100 bucks on Ebay, $185 at the store.

SOURCE: no spark, just put in
I had the same problem with my 85 cj7 this week, I relpaced the ignition control module, plugs, wires, cap, rotor and the the coil; still had no fire to plugs. the problem turned out to be my distributor, replaced it today and she fired right up. Most likely it was the pick up module in the distributor that went bad.
