My 88 mustang just stoped and I am not getting any spark

Ok my 1988 ford mustang has a 1 year new engine and has been running fine. Then yesterday it just shut off while driving. I towed it home. I changed the coil, distributor, and control modular on the dirtributor. Did a compression test and it is set on cylindar one. I don't seem to be getting any spark. On time I put some starter fluid sprayed in teh throttle and it almost seemed like it was going to start. This was after playing with the emergincy switch in the hatch back for the pump too. I am not sure what else to check or do?

If you pulled the dist. out, you need to be sure you got it back in correctly. Make sure you're not off 180 degrees on it, or even a tooth or two off. Just because parts are new doesn't mean they are good. Most common, in my opinion, is the ignition module. Do you have fuel up to the throttle body?
