327 wont start

so i installed a new intake and carb after getting rid of some holleys. Afterwards my engine would crank but not start. I have a mallory coil and the associated electronic ballast, there is 12.2 volts going into the ballast and 3 coming out. When i crank the engine with a multimeter on the coil it says there is about 1 volt. Im assuming that that isn't enough to spark a plug considering my timing light wont even strobe. Any advice?

Need more information, it this a full Mallory ignition system, coil, distributor and all? What vehicle? Do you need that ballast resistor?
