Default No Spark on 90' Sammy

Ok Ive been going through all sorts of post on here and found alot of very useful info on here, so for that thank you all. I bought my wife a 1990 Sidekick and after a few days I knew I would have to have one. I bought 3 more Sammys after that one is a 1986 4x4 the other is a 1990 2 wheel drive and a 1991 4x4 for parts. Ok enough with the introduction, my question is one, where is good place to find simple parts like a starter or other misc. parts other than autozone. The 86' runs great but the 1990 has no spark but does turn over. How can I test the P.C.M or the control module or the ignitor or the coil to tell where the faulty part is? I know this is kind of a duh type question but any info would be great.

Does the '91 start? I think that you made a great decision to get the parts Sammy, I would try parts from that rig first (one at a time) to see if you hit the jackpot.
You know you can also change the 2wd to 4wd with those parts... It is basically a bolt-in.

The 90' when i got it was not running nor was the 86'. The 86' however had not ran in about 4 months, after a fresh battery was hooked up it started after just touching the key and then charged the old battery from the altenator. The only problem with it is that 4 low isnt working i am looking at replacing the mounts on it and see if that resolves the issue, it already has the new bushings in it. Ok now to the 90' it has a bad starter so i took the one off of the 86' bolted it on and it turned over without any problem even though it would not run, we grounded a sparkplug to see if it was getting fire and it wasn't. Im not sure how to test the coil or the igniter and at the price autozone wants i would like to get it right the first time. Also i was reading that the 90' has a "P.C.M" i believe it is called and any insight to how to test it or hell really where to find it would be great. The 91' 4x4 was actually only a good body with a transmission and front and rear end that was about it. I will hunting a transfer case after i get the 90' 2x4 swapped over to a 4x4 front end.
