No Spark No Fuel 305. Help Please

My Trucked Stalled Today. Started Right Up Stall A Few Times On The Way To Auto Parts Store. Bought New Coil New Coil Wire. It Started Right Up No Miss. Ran Good All The Way Home ( 5 Miles).
Stalled In My Drive Way. I Am Going To Replace Ing Control Mod In Morning Along With Cap Rotor Wires And Plugs. I Have Fuel Pressure Up To The Throttle Body But None From Injectors. Any Help Would Be Greatly Appreciated. This Is My Work Truck And Need To Be On The Rode In 2 Days. 1987 Chevy Scottsdale With Unknown Year Motor Swap.

ignition module in the distributor is shot. if the computer doesn't see ignition pulses from it, it won't fire the injectors

ecm very rarely dies. you'd have more problems then just stalling if the ignition switch was screwed.
i wouldn't bother with the Cap Rotor Plugs And Wires unless they need changing anyways

Having been down this road many times with daily drivers I would sink my money into a newer vehicle. One with a warrentee.
When they get old they need a lot of attention.

Very common problem on this era GM HEI was cracked distributor reluctor, causing intermittant misfire, rough run, no start and stall, just to name a few. The only repair for that is a new dizzy...
