Cool '86 mercury lynx won't start

I was wondering if anybody would know why this car won't start. Ireplaced the fuel filter and the fuel pump, spark plugs but it still won't start. It cranks it just doesn't want to turn over and start and I can't figure out what's wrong with it. I would appreciate it if someone could help me out.

I don't think that there is gas getting to the engine even thoughI replaced the fuel pumpbut I can't tell. I don't know if its giving out a spark to the engine. I replaced everything I thought it could be except the fuel line but I don't know if the fuel line being clogged would actually be the problem.

Ford TFI modules are junk thats my gut feeling on this.But if it were mine I would replace the pickup coil at the same time.The insulation breaks down and shorts the module out.

I agree, but need to know if we are lacking fuel or spark to condemn the module.

That being said, Ford has a class settlement on this module. If it turns out to be that, you might contact Ford customer service and ask them to eat the cost of the repair/part.
