I have a 92 mustang it turns over normal speed Its getting fuel but not spark. I've replaced The msd coil,msd ignition box,distributer, Silinoid switch,key switch, and the Ignition switch in the...


Since you are getting good spark, I would guess first that your timing is too far off. Use a timing light to check the timing since the distributor was replaced. If your timing is too far advanced or retarded it wont fire up, but do exactly as you mention. Also, be sure your firing order is correct.

Wiring an hei distributor


You shouldn't need a spark box because thee coil is located in the dist. cap. You need to run a 12v switched power source to the side of the dist. cap that is marked dist. if it isn't maked it is the term. that is on the front right of the conector pad. the one on the left is for hooking up a tach.
