Check your catalitic converter, you might start with an oxygen sensor first. your local muffler shop can do a temp check on the converter for you, but you can replace the oxgen sensor your self pretty easy.

SOURCE: have a 91 dodge ram 3500 van and have no spark.

I had a similar problem and had to change the distributor pick up. Quite easy and parts were less than $30.00. It was for the B250 model, and the 318 engine....but I suspect there is a similar pickup in distributor for the bigger engine

If everything you listed is in fact all good, then the only other thing left would be a vacuum leak in the intake runner to #1 cylinder. (intake gasket) It wouldn't be the first time I have seen bad intake gaskets on a Dodge

New plug misfire in dodge ram 1500 6 cyl van

could be your coil, but can also be internal, have you replaced both the air & fuel filters ? if so, dump some good fuel injector cleaner into tank when half empty , top off with 91-92 octane fuel, see how that works for you, do some highway driving, stop & go traffic creates problems, todays fuel w/ethonal is bad for older cars, be sure to have code cleared from ecm !

1991 15 passenger van no spark won't start

As with any no start condition, you need to figure out if you have no spark to the plugs or no fuel to the injectors.
A common problem on Mopar products is the pickup coil in the dist and the ASD relay.

When setting the timing marks together distributor always points to #6 not #1 put new timing chain & gears in but cant get it timed right 5.2

Is it possible to turn the distributor shaft 180 degrees and reinstall the dist ?
I am assuming you have spark at the plugs, just not at the right time ?
If the distributor has not been moved, and the rotor points to the wrong wire, you could have put the cam gear in upside down ?

My 91 dodge 318 4x4 starts but falls on face when in gear most of the time but revs fine in park and n most of the time acts like fuel is cut off but when i watch the injectors gets fuel

check for rusted leaking fuel lines in back near fuel tank , clogged fuel filter, low pressure in fuel pump check with gage , check air filter , loose plug wires , bad plugs and wires , timming, cap rotor, bad gas from the botton of the tank, see if you can get a code out of it that would help alot
