post the distributor/ignition system/components you are using now, not much to go on here.
Also have you verified 12 volts source and the proper connections. I suspect there is either no voltage and/or you dont have the new system wired properly.

I once burned out 2 coils before I realized I had mistakenly cut the resiator wire from the system, I ended up putting a resistor from a chrysler in line with the +12v and all was fine
