Help!! 1987 Chevy Monte Carlo

I have a 1987 Chevy Monte Carlo that cranks but will not start. I have already changed Plugs, Plug Wires, Distributor Cap & Rotor, Ignition Coil, Ignition Control Module, Fuel Filter, Battery. Now I am stumped. Yes there is gas in the tank, and fuel pressure is good. I do know that there is no spark to the plugs. What else could be wrong?

Engine size? Mileage? Does the ignition rotor turn when you crank the car? If not, the timing chain has fallen off and must be replaced.

If not, I'd look to the pickup unit in the distributor for intermittent connection or fault. Tug on the wires. Sometimes the wires break under the insulation making them LOOK good.
