My vehicle is a 1sxt gen. 1985 Toyota 4Runner, 2.4L Manual. The truck will start, then die. I tested plugs and when it starts or I'm cranking, I get spark. When key returns to "ON" position after starting, I lose spark. I know that after starting and key returns to ON position, I should still have power to ignition, but I don't. How do I fix this?

Under braking the pedal goes down a bit but functions well. I have replace the master cylinder and the booster. Both front calipers replaced.

After it does the brakes seem hyper sensitive. Where as before the seemed more "normal".
