Ok, I've tracked down my problem with the no spark, the distributor wasn't turning, got it out, and lo and behold, sheer pin is in fact sheered. Well, I checked and it is sheered because the oil pump seized. I've tracked down an oil pump (a huge thank you to Kurt at cruiser outfitters), now the hard part seems to be getting a new sheer pin.
Now I know I'm not the first person this has happened to (at least pretty damned sure), so where did anyone find a replacement sheer pin? Dealer was, well, we'll just say stumped. Told me to find a machine shop. I'm thinking that there has to be one.

What has anyone else done?

I had sheared 3 pins on my old (rebuilt) distributor before we figured out was up:

Toyota never actually put a shear pin there. It's supposed to be a solid pin. If you take apart a factory distributor, you'll notice that. Yeah, that might cause problems with your oil pump, but that's what it was from the factory.
