no fire

i was driving my truck down the road today and it just dies on me like i turned off the key so i pull into pizza hut parking lot change the coyle,module,cap,rotor,button and i checked to see if i was getting fire through the plug wires by sticking a screwdriver in them and holding it against the block and still no fire and then i checked the hot wire from the ignition to the dist and it is getting electricity so any ideals or questions?

Might sound dumb but make sure the 3 prongs for the module plug to cap are all straight and plugged in also make sure you have the wire hooked to batt side of cap and not tach. 11.83 is plenty to make it fire. Where all parts new you put on?
