Since you are getting good spark, I would guess first that your timing is too far off. Use a timing light to check the timing since the distributor was replaced. If your timing is too far advanced or retarded it wont fire up, but do exactly as you mention. Also, be sure your firing order is correct.
I would suspect the ignition control if you have already replaced all that stuff. I personally would replace it with an MSD ignition for better running and fuel mileage, but the ignition module should be a whole lot cheaper.
Check power SUPPLY to the ignition box when the problem is happening.If supply and ground are maintained at all times,then yes,it is the ignition box.I have an MSD 6AL i bought NEW about 5 years ago...it just quit working one day.MSD said they would fix it if i shipped it to them for a min/max charge.Min like $80.....max was $150.I bought an electronic distributor,module,and wiring harness from Mopar Performance for $200 brand new.
What exactly are you trying to fix? I use the stock type 3-wire distributor in my 68 Mustang and use an MSD 6AL box with a Blaster II coil. What's your truck doing? Why are you going to replace the distributor? Need more info. in order to help you fix your problem. Shoot me an email email@example.com. I'd be more than happy to help you through your problem.
