Default 91 Honda accord Cut off while Driving and now wont start?

I have replaced the coil, main relay, spark plugs, cap, and rotor.

i still don't get spark, i have plenty of fuel going to it and i would still get some sort of spark if the ignitor was bad. the ignition switch is good as well. Im running out of options. what should my next step(s) should be?

It is NOT true that "i would still get some sort of spark if the ignitor was bad". If the Ignitor is bad, you will get NO spark. It is likely, from your description of the problem, that you have a bad ignitor. Since they are rather expensive ($125 - $150), you might want to bench test your ignitor before buying a new one.. See the reference url for a testing method. Here's a tip for getting the ignitor out of the distributor. It is mounted with two small phillips head screws that are extremely tight. Take a sharp chisel and place the tip under the screw head. Give the end of the chisel a few sharp raps with a hammer. The idea here is NOT to break off the screw head, but rather to just stretch the screw a tiny bit. This will make it loose and easy to unscrew. Use a high quality screw driver of the correct size,
