Test (or replace with known good units) your engine speed sensor and crank position sensors. A google search for those two will lead you to some good info. Check your grounds as well. Also, do you hear the fuel pump when you turn the key on, before attempting to crank it over?

starting with a OEM replacment igintion switch tomorrow going to see where that leads me. I noticed that the speeds sensors all look new. (doesnt mean there good) but want to start with the simple stuff.

any chance that the flywheel timing pin was damaged or broken?
Double checked distributor position and that it's not 180 degrees off?

Pull the #1 cylinder spark plug, put a dowel or some long enough to touch the cylinder top and visible from the outside. rotate the engine until the dowel is at its highest point sticking out, thats #1 TDC. Now check the distributor position, the #1 plug wire should be at about 8 o'clock position with you facing the distributor (firing order is 1, 2, 4, 5, 3, starting at about the 8 oclock position.

ECU codes would help you troubleshoot

Sorry for such a delay. Working 65+ hours aweek is getting old! I installed a OEM ignition switch. No change. ohm tested the crank sensors (good) Then it randomly started. I just bought a coil w/ignition module and going to try that next because there is no way to test it.

My guess is either the crank sensor or possibly the wiring in the harness to the ignition switch.

Is it possible the ECU is just bad or have a bad solder joint?

I tried another ECU.
