NO SPARK !!!

Hey Guys,
Have a question about a 1977 K10 Chevy with a inline 250 6 cylinder. I can't get any spark from the disturbuter I have 12volts going to the coil 12volt going in to the dist. at the module. I replaced everything coil, module, pick up coil, cap, rotor, condenser/capicator. This system has a remote coil, all grounds are good at least i think they are. I'm getting no spark can you help me. I hooked up another hei dist. from a V8 chevy with coil in cap ground off the valve cover and spin the shaft I get spark
HELP ME PLEASE

Is the gap for the pickup coil set right? It wasn't set right on my Dodge van and it had no spark. Set it and....voila......spark.

The Dodge one had a slot where it was tightened down.....you set the gap with a feeler guage. Don't remember the setting.

Not sure how the Chevy one is, but probably similar. Someone here probably knows the setting..................

I dont think there is a way to adjust it, it set on the shaft and a c-clip holds it down no adjusting like that

No Spark!!!

The little washer under the disturbuter shaft what purpose does it do and would it have anything to do with not firing?
