sudden death!!!

Hello, here is my problem.
My `90 astro all of a sudden wont start. I changed pluggs, wires, rotor and cap. It just won`t fire up once in about 20 times. stone dead.
The starter runs, but it`s like, the ignition isn`t on. Then I leave it for an hour or so, and she fires up perfectly like nothing ever happend. When it runs it runs great. smooth idling, good performance, no stalling. Does anybody have a clue whats wrong, or where to start looking??

double check the distributor reference, for future knowledge, it doesn't need to be removed to change the pickup or module.good luck!!
Just feel compelled to correct my last post here.... the module can be replaced without dist removal... the pickup DOES require the dist to be out... sorry!
P.S. Make sure you put the gear back on the same way, and put the unit back in correctly, which, if you didn't turn anything, the oil pump drive probably will keep you from getting the distributor to seat any way but 180* out.
