Default 89 Ranger 2.3l, Died.. No spark.

Hi,

I've got a 89 Ranger with a 2.3l motor. The other day I was driving and it died on me and will not start now. The motor cranks, but will not fire. I have fuel pressure, but no spark. It has 8 plugs, 2 per cylinder and therefor has 2 coils packs. I checked both sides and neither has spark. That leads me to believe that its not the coil packs because both would most likely not go out at the same exact time. So I replaced the ignition module. Still no spark. Any other suggestions? Its my only vehicle and I need it for work/school.

Timing belt could have jumped a notch. Mine did the same thing and I got the belt back right and it fired right up.
