if you still are not getting spark with the other working dizzy then it has to be wiring related. ECU doesn't really have anything to do with it.

is the dizzy upside down?

i don't no about b series but on other honda motor the dizzy only goes on one way but is you are geting spark then not check the ground wire on all grounding points but mainly check the battery to the body - wire i got a civic for 100 bux once because of this, dude was pissed

B series are the same way only goes in one way.

Check the black/yellow stripe wire to see if it has battery voltage with key on if not check #9 fuse in the underdash fuse box to see if its blown.

No it can go on 2 ways. The little thing that connects to the cam can be turned 1 way or 180 degrees the opposite way. having it turn the opposite way of what valves the cam is lifting will cause your car not to fire.

Nope the fin sticking out the end of the dist is offset to one side.And it would still spark just not start.
