Help: Not getting spark

My buddy has a '86 Ranger and he's not getting spark. I was gonna help him, but I know nothing about the older motors and how they're set up.

His dad suggested it might be a brain... any more insight?

Here's the pic. of the engine:

X2, the ICM is usually what goes.
It's the small box located on the driver's side intake manifold,
with wiring plugs going into the top and bottom.
