Exclamation Problem with no solution?

I have just come into ownership of a 1987 635csi, in trade for a 318i, but thats besides the point .....right now it will not run ....i can tell you its getting fuel but no spark and the distributor and cap are new....its just not even turning over, so here is my question....

What could be WRONG???....

If you need to know more information to conclude what might potentially be wrong just ask...

P.S. I saw what appeared to be a crank positioning sensor, and since I dont know anything about the 635's after '86 would that possibly be the problem since the same things sorta happened to my moms '91 325ic....but I could be wrong

Thank You

If the car doesn't even attempt to turn over.. (not even a click from the starter), and the spark plugs don't get any power either... it could be the engine ground to the chassis is loose or severed. It's a longshot, but I spent a whole day troubleshooting a car a while back, and the problem was just that stupid ground was not on securely. :|
