Default 90 5.0 cranks but no fire

Got a 90 5.0 that will crank over but not fire, I have fuel and the icm tests good. But I'm still not getting spark, tested for power at each pin on the module and coil everything has power as it should. I don't know what else to check

Are they changable on these distributors or does the whole thing have to be replaced?

You can change the PIP but the entire distributor needs to be disassembled. I also thought it was your Profile ignition pickup ( pip ) they are known to cause intermittent spark.

For the trouble of replacing it, add about 20 bucks and you can just get a reman dizzy .
