87 ranger 4×4 2.9 no fire from coil. So far.

Now I know its Easter Sunday. Been through this once before bout a year ago. Just all the sudden BAM it dies, will not start. That's how it happened the first time. Replaced all electrical components. It started after the last one. This time a little different. Started bout a week ago, sputtered coming to a stop light, almost died, but didn't. Couple nights later it dies. Starts back up. Couple nights later it dies rather abruptly, starts, dies, starts, dies. I'm thinking fuel filter clogged or sending unit in tank. Let it sit for 5 mins. Starts, gets us home. Go to Walmart to get a filter, cause its after hours. It dies leaving the parking lot. Next morning change filter, old one smelled bad. Now. No fire. So the last part I replaced last year, first one I check this time. ICM. On the distributer. Have it tested. Its bad. Replace. Still no fire. Just got it towed home this morning. Any ideas?

Update. I know everybody's dying from anticipation. Replaced fusible link coming out of coil plug. Awesome. I do like the forums.

Glad to hear it all worked out, I had nothing for you, almost sounded like the situation when my wife's MAF sensor got some debris on it, but figured that was not the case here.
