Deleted the post beacuse the moderator PM'ed me and said I was violating the rules by double posting. That indeed was the point of the double post..updated my post as I gathered further info.
First time to get scolded on a forum and I am super or gold on my RC plane ones.
Tried to unsubscribe but it was to slow.

I live in Calera, Al.

To date it has a new coil, new crank position sensor, spark plug wires are 2 months old.
I have no votage to the wires, nothing at the coil.
Signal to the Crank sensor is good...according to Haynes.
No signal back.

I am having it towed to Dodge, Thanks for the hints. I give up and do not have any more time to waste on this truck right now.
Christmas coming up...travel.

that's weird... usually a mod will just delete doubles... I know some users with dialup may end up with doubles since the xfer rate is so slow.

sorry we couldnt figure out your issue, hopefully dodge wont hurt you too bad.

Hi Blue 2050, Have you changed your coil. They are known to let you down, even the performance coils will let you down when the time comes. Just the performance ones will start a little harder when damp and then finally give up as well.
Does your coil wire run along the valve pan cover like the 360s do. If so re-locate the coil wire when you get your truck runnin'. One leaking coil wire will take out a fuel injector and cripple your computer.

Check that coil

Hope this helps

New OEM coil...time factor
New OEM coil...time factor
Maybe hotter coil later and whatever else I might find to do FUN (performance enhacing) on this forum.

As I said sent it to the shop where they have mighty 50,000 dollar computer diagnostic equipment.
Didge says it indeed the computer.
Signal from the CPK present....guess my book is wrong or I did not have good connection when I read it.
No output signal from the computer.
New one next day on the way. Truck fixed by tomorrow.
I am in a better mood now, sorry Mr. Moderator; but to fuss at me when I am already upset is not a good idea

So who needs a cheap used CPK and coil, both were/are good. CPK is just fun to change, coil is to easy.
Thanks for help all.

Now I need a new exhaust system. My old flowmaster broke at the rear flange a few months back. 2 in, 1 out muffler.
The entire system needs replacing, mounts broken, flange bolts loose but rusted together.
I will browse but if anybody has any info on wonderful sounding sytems that increase gas milage 50% let me know.
