I would check the cap rotor and coil wire. especially rotor, a bad cap will generally give you a miss, not a no-start. Doubtful that plug wires all went bad at once so don't bother checking with ohm meter (do that if necessary when it's running.) Check spark at one or two wires at plug end and see if you have any. Check the distributor shaft for excessive side play. check pickup coil inside dist. and check ignition coil. As module is new, doubt if it is bad. Also, make sure you are getting 12v to the coil from the ignition switch.
also make sure when you are cranking the engine that the rotor is actually turning. If you need help with testing ask and I'll help you. only part that can't really be tested is the module but if new you don't need to do that.

Have you tried looking at ignition module,also look at the rotor in cap

The crank angle sensor maybe bad. It sends a signal to the computer so the spark plugs fire up.
