Disconnect or removed? Because since you have done everything else, it seems like the last possibility.

Pull the distributor out and see if there's a gear on the bottom. They break off.

relocated ground on rear of intake, to back side of the head, wala have spark well almost intermittent spark , but enough to help through a code p0339 , but that was a new crank sensor , replaced the new sensor with another new sensor, fired right up, learned can't trust new parts all the time

I am having the exact same problem at the moment.Replaced Coil and Ignition control module ,went ahead and put new plugs and wires while i was at it.Still no fire.Its not in the distributor because theres no fire being supplied from the coil.(My truck is a V6 4.3L)So it only has one primary cell.Gonna try the crank position sensor this evening.Wish me luck!
