    Cool, I got the engine in and everything is reinstalled, fluids done, all the wiring is in place. SOB cranks over but wont start. I havent done the timing yet, I will check for spark in the morning. Had issues with fuel lines, ok now, but injectors should be working (brand new). I replaced the old standard dizzy with a new HEI dizzy. Didnt accept the old harness, so I just used the power lead (the only thing the new dist needed, has coil on top). Any suggestions?

    You have a wrong distributor. The ECM needs feedback from the module in order for the injectors to work and also in order for the ECM to control timing function.

    Can I just replace the coil and cap, or will the whole thing have to come out? It was a real PITA to get in.
