So I have a 1982 Celica GT, with a 22R. Last night my alternator went out, I had a replacement so I put it in, the problem is now that the car is cranking, but wont start. It seems that I am not getting spark at all, but for the life of me I can't tell why. Can anyone help with this? Any direction would be greatly appreciated!

My first thought, and you may have done this, is to check your fusible link near the battery. It's possible that the fuse may have blown.

Yeah, all fuses were checked and accounted for, all good. I just replaced the coil thinking it may be that, but still no spark. Maybe the coil ignitor? :?

I had a 78 Celica years ago and I thought the factory ignition box took a dump on me. They usually last forever, and there's supposed to be some sort of test for it. I bought one, and still no spark. Since I was careful and didn't leave marks I returned it and the problem was the igniter (inside the distributor) and once I replaced that the problem was gone. It was much cheaper, but still costly (not sure of aftermarket price on that).

Just a(nother) thought...

i asked a friend of mine to read this and this is the reply i got- it could be many things. right off the top, id say he(you) knocked something loose, but next off, id say the ignitor took a dump. at this point shy of throwing parts at it, read the manual and test test test

Sorry, I mispoke. I initially thought it was the ignitor (the Factory Ignition box) but it was the Signal Generator inside the distributor. I had the same issues you were having. But the "test test test" issues is correct, I didn't have an ohmeter back then, and recently fixed a friends 86 4Runner because testing revealed a bad TPS. One the TPS was replaced, all the problems went away. (not saying yours is a TPS, just saying that testing is worth it.)
