1998 Dodge Ram - NO SPARK

This is my last non-ford truck and it's going up for sale, however I can't sell it until it starts!

1998 dodge ram 2500, 5.9L V8, 4X4, automatic

Last week I started it but it revved very high (throttle cable stuck) so I turned it off figured I'd deal with it when I had more time. Went to move it today and it turns over but won't start - no spark. I have since replaced the ignition coil and cap and rotor. The fuel pump does engage and the ASD is functioning correctly. Any ideas, any input is always appreciated.

Thanks,
PHIX

Can`t be much help other than to suggest you check any ground wires around top of engine and any from engine to frame and body.

There's probably a hall effect sensor in the distributor to trigger the spark.

Also, some mopars have crank sensors.

You might try allpar.com or one of the other mopar forums. ( I think that there's a dodgetruck.com)
