Question Help to Start after 2 Years Sitting

I have a 1986 190E that's been sitting for about 2 years and need to get it running. It cranks but won't start. I just bought a new ICM and need help/advice to get it started and drivable. I have fuel pressure but don't think plugs are firing. I need lots of help and advice on approach to cure its ills.

You can find more detail help in the model section, but if memory serves me right, the car has points and distributor?
Points need to be cleaned while the distributor cap, rotors and possible wires need to be replaced.
Once you confirm the spark - you can use starting fluid to help you with diagnosis of fuel problems.
I assume you replaced the fuel filter and at least added fresh gas?
Welcome to the forum.
