1986 LX 3.8 V6 NO SPARK HELP!

I have a 1986 LX that was running great and it seemed to have a charging problem. I was looking into that and checking the alternator disconnected the battery terminal while it was running and it stayed running. So the alternator seems to be working.

Well now after I shut the car down it will no longer start. I looked into it and it's getting no spark. I have replaced the coil, module, distributor, and ignition switch.

The crazy thing about it is, when am cranking the car checking for spark I get nothing until I let off the key and it sparks for a split second. This is the only time that I get spark out of the coil. I don't understand it. I have replaced damn near everything in the ignition system.

Anyone have any ideas? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Chris
