May be the coil, or the Distributor Ignition Pickup under the cap.

One other thing to check would be to grab a hold of the rotor and see if you can turn it. If it does, then the pin is sheered on the distributor shaft.

Thank you,I was thinking coil and I replaced the entire distributor and had the shaft rebuilt before I parked it so I didn't check it that thoroughly.When I find the problem I will let you know. Any help is always appreciated.My 300-6 was running great when I parked it.

So if you replaced the "entire distributor" & the ignition control module, the coil is really all thats left to check as far as making a spark. The coil can be checked at Auto Zone. If not finding a problem there, check and see if 12V is getting to the coil when the key is on. Also check the fuses for shits and grins if you still have not found the problem.
