So, I swapped in my sohc zc last night. I got everything done and went to turn it over. I am getting fuel but no spark. I checked the connector from the harness to the dist and its not getting power! I checked the main fuses and the fuse box under the dash, along with connections and grounds. I am using the d15 intake manifold and harness. Any one have an idea?

check your coil, when we swapped in my buddies z6 into a hatch to get rid of his d15, we had the same problem. it needed a new distributor the coil and ignition switch was bad.
let me know what the deal is.

Its not even getting power to the distributor. Keep thinking further

Yes and no. I did a quick briefing of the fuses and relays. I know that I have two grounds so. . . . maybe theres something I missed?

Why would I change the ecu?! The car is a 91 ef hatch with a 88-91 sohc zc. Everything other than the block and head is d15 Dual Point. If you read my post, im running Dual Point!
