Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here
The lack of spark can be caused by any of the following,
Distributor Shaft
Distributor Wiring
Ignition Control Module
Pick-Up Coil
Since you have replaced the ignition module you may be looking at a bad distributor pick up. I have enclosed the test steps in the link below to test this. Copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view it.

One other thing, make sure the ground wire at the starter motor was installed during the engine swap.
