You're certain you're getting fuel pressure to the fuel rail but no spark?

Fuel pressure at the fuel rail that the injectors are plugged into? Normal pressure from the fuel pump is 49 psi.

And have you checked for spark out of the coil before it enters the distributor?

Exactly, you have either a distributor cap or a rotor problem. Replace them both as a set and I bet your problem is fixed.

If spark is leaving the ignition coil & entering the distributor but not making it out to the spark plugs, the spark is just not getting "distributed". That job is the sole responsibility of the distributor cap & rotor so my bet is on one of those... if the spark is indeed leaving the coil and no spark is at the spark lugs that is.

No start

Still no spark new cap, rotor today checked tester again today spark
From coil wire to cap maybe not strong enough? It lights my lisle tester?
From cap to plug no spark at all from tester maybe try new coil?
Not much left but stupid wiring issues!!
