Default 91 accord 114k wont start follow up as to what caused it and more ?s please help

Hello to all,
1st and foremost thanks for your help and wonderful insight and advice. Turns out it was something with the distributor. I went and pulled a nice looking distributor off a 91 Honda accord at the salvage yard today and it works great. This is what I would like to know from you now so I can learn something here. When I inspected the old (bad distributor) I notice the distributor cap was very badly corroded and it appeared like that might have been the problem. So if indeed the problem was the distributor cap only I did a lot of extra double work. I believe the contacts on the distributor cap might have been corded enough so that the rotor could not make contact or spark. Would that really make this problem just a corroded cap and the contact points being corroded inside the cap? Please advise me here so I can learn. If its not the distributor cap then it would have been the igniter inside the distributor. I also took apart the distributor and inside I found the igniter (Either the igniter or the coil) to be crystallized and would fall off/apart when you touched it. I believe that corrosion on the igniter was causing the corrosion on the distributor cap would do you think please advise me thanks for you help in this matter.
