I got this 86 caravan from my brother.
we have changed the distributor cap, the pick-up coil and the main ignition coil but we still get no spark. What do you think?

You may have some damage to the PCM, a lot of times these Dodge vehicles have broken or defective PCMs after an impact due to the mounting location of the PCM in the engine compartment. Suggest having your PCM scanned to see if it is communicating with the rest of the vehicle. Even though this is an 86 it should have a PCM or otherwise called an ECM in many older vehicles.
