'94 2.3, no fire on #1 cylinder

Maybe you guys can help.
I have a 1994 2.3. It is not firing on either fuel or exhaust side of the number one cylinder. A friend advised me that it may be the cam position sensor, which sounded right. However I've come to find out that only the '94 2.3's built for California emissions have a cam position sensor. I can't find information on this truck related to emissions, but I can't find the camshaft position sensor, either, and don't think it has one. So...what else do I look for related to the engine not firing on the #1 cylinder? This truck has new plugs, wires, coils, none of which helped with my misfire problem. Thanks for any help.

That was a journey.
No camshaft position sensor on a '94 Ranger 2.3.
Crankshaft position sensor feeds information to the ignition control module, which directs firing order at the coils. I was happy it was not the crankshaft position sensor, but the ignition control module that needed replacing. The ignition control module sets on the air intake manifold on this Ranger and is a much easier fix.
Vehicle now has new plugs, new wires, new coil packs, clean mass air flow sensor, and a new ignition control module.
Running good for the time being.
