Well I swapped out the fuel distributor with my stock one, once again I am getting fuel and spark, but not even a chance of firing up. The starter is turning the engine, but I'm not even getting as much as a backfire!

I double checked ignition timing, and even turned the dizzy both ways, then tried to crank it.

What could I be missing here? I was always worried about the condition of the wires in the harness, but now that I have changed out the green dizzy wire, I am not sure which other wires could be preventing it from firing.

Any idea's at all would be greatly appreciated. I am giving myself the weekend to try to figure it out, then its on the tow truck and off to a shop.
