"won't crank". This would imply (to me, anyway) that it doesn't turn over on the key, yet you're saying no spark at spark plugs?

Assuming that it's turning over and not firing, is the tach needle moving when it's cranking over? Mine does...

These are CIS motors, there's no brain and thus no DME relay. There might possibly be a Lamba O2 system that regulates warm, part-throttle running and can be largely ignored for the purposes of starting the car (and complete removal in non-emission areas is common).

Check coil and dizzy connections, and that there's 12V to the coil would be my SWAG.
