starting problems, crank pos sensor

so heres what happened. i replaced my clutch master cylinder and while taking it for a test drive it just died. after pushing it to the side of the road i tried to start it, it cranked but wouldnt turn over. i figured it was either the fuel filter or pump but the fuel pump was still working and the filter was fine. i then checked to see if i was getting spark which i wasnt so i tested the coil and wasnt getting any power to it. i did a little research and found someone with the same problem and it was their crank position sensor. so i bought a new one and installed it. it still wouldnt start so i started testing everything again. now the coil had power but wasnt sending a spark to the distributer. so i bought a new coil installed it and it fired ran for about 2 or 3 minutes and then died and now im back to square 1. any thoughts???
