Have you checked the wires going into the distributor? Make sure there are no loose connections and that the wires are in fact providing the 12V input. I know if these get disconnected or frayed or anything it will cause the distributor to not produce a spark. These wires are usually located on the driverside or rear of the distributor.

If thats not it then you might want to take the distributor cap off and make sure that metal end sitting atop that black box is making good contact with the points on the cap.

the wires are good, the new cap and rotor have no burn marks from any current hitting them, is it possible that the timing is too out of whack to cause this? or would a new dist. and coil fix the problem?

Have you checked to see if you are getting power to the coil?

i get power at the connecter from the battery, but none on the one from the dist. to the coil, same problem i have had before but after 3 new modules im doubting i have 3 bad ignition modules. also this happened after the dist. was removed to change my fuel system. but i am not sure exactly what position it was in when i took it out, so im concerned that the timing iss way too wrong to even work, is that possible?

Distributors have those small power conditioning coils. Would that possibly be the problem? I've heard of these going out and ruining fresh coils and modules. I think. Was a while back when I heard this.
