Mitsubishi Expo LRV Reviews

I am not getting Fire. Changed cap, rotor, battery, distributor and fuel pump too.Considering possible relay or the computer brain to be the culprit, as to why I am not getting fire to start my car. Where is the relay that sends fire/spark?
My Expo LRV was purchased in 9/93 with 13K miles on it . I've had it for 17 years, and In 2010 it has 61K miles and is still in excellent condition. Several parts have been replaced as needed, but the engine still runs like a champ. This car is classic quality and I admire the Mitsubishi designers.
Parents bought the 95 Expo and I inherited the car when I left to college. The car is still kicking along with 170,000 and counting. The transmission was rebuilt at around 80,000 and replaced it with a used transmission at around 110,000 and I haven't had any major issues since. The engine is a underpowered and it can be felt when their are 4 or more passengers.
