You have spark at the coil wire but not at the plugs right? Have you tried a cap and rotor?

Cant get fire to distribitor on a 1988 ford ranger could coil cause it


Assuming old-style setup (not sure when coil packs became standard), your task is to check that:
1. Battery power is on one lead of coil.
2. Other lead from coil is connected to points in distributor
3. Points do indeed connect and disconnect when engine turns
4. Condenser is ok (not shorted)
Check points gap when fully open. Bridge points when open and check for spark when you open that bridge connection.

1988 ford ranger no spark


Did you replace the ignition control module, it is called the "TFI"? That is the most common source of a no start. There is also a problem with the ignition starter switches coming apart and causes a loss of power to the ignition system.
