Do you have 12 volts going to the distributor?
Is the distributor grounded to the block? The clamp is the ground path so make sure that the clamp ring is clean (no paint).
How are you testing for spark?
Run a jumper direct from the battery to the distributor to eliminate the wiring and ignition sw.
