I'd run a temp jumper from the neg post on the battery to the neg terminal on the dizzy and see if it starts.

If it doesn't, I'd leave that one in place and run a seperate jumper from the pos post on the battery to the pos terminal on the dizzy and see if it starts. (You'll have to pull the jumper to kill it)

if it doesn't run "hot-wired" then you have an internal dizzy problem. When you did all that swapping out did you put the carbon coil transfer pin, It's that pin that connects the coil to the cap normally has a spring and a rubber washer and needs some di-electric grease on it.
