Default 1992 Camry wont start

I have a 1992 camry with 110k miles.

One month ago I replaced the distributor cap, rotor, and coil. Now one month later, while I was driving last week, the car stalled when I stopped at a light. I now have no spark. I have proved that the following parts are in good working condition, the igniter, spark wires, distributor, distributor rotor and the car still won't start. All of my fuses are also good. I don't have any spark.

Any help would be appreciated,
THANK YOU

you do not mention you replaced the wires as well. look under the rotor for a small burn hole, look directly in the middle of that rotor, because if there is a tiny burn hole, it will go directly to the distributor shaft, where you cannot see it. you will also have to check the wire going into the coil as well. it can be broken. there is also a "condenser" mounted on the outside of the distributor, you may have to replace that too.

Does the engine crank? If it does and it sounds kind of wheezy, it might be a timing belt. Check and see if the rotor is turning when you crank. Had it happen to me on my 92 Camry last year. Expensive for a shop to fix, but isn't that bad if you do it yourself.

I checked the timing belt and it was ok. Are there any checks for the distributor?
