there is no spark out of the coil itself ?
if not with the cap off and cranking it over does the rotor turn ?
if so with the key ON at the ignition coil unplug the GREY connector does one wire terminal show 12 volts in that connector you unplugged with the key ON ?
ok plug the everything back in then unplug the 4 wire distributor connector with it unplugged will you get spark ? if not then plug back in the 4 terminal connector and with the key ON unplug the 2 wire connector at the distributor do BOTH terminals in that connector you unplugged show 12 volts ? or 11.5 ?
ok thank you for testing it
plug everything back in and with the key ON on the coil grey connector the wire that did NOT show 12 volts with the key on back probing that OTHER wire with the key ON what does it show for volts ?
ok great job testing
can you connect a test light with the test light clip to a GOOD ground and back probe that same wire you just did when cranking it over will the light blink or stay steady ?
i am sorry for all the testing but we are almost done testing hang in there
ok at this point this issue is inside the distributor itself
the distributor has the 2 power and when cranking it over it is not blinking for a coil spark trigger
i know this has a new module and pick up coil but the magnet on the pole piece is got to be the problem or the pick up coil or module is defective
your best bet is to pick up a reman complete distributor and just swap it out complete to correct this issue you are having
