I just rebuilt and put the motor back in and I dont have any spark when Im turning the motor over. The motor is a 365 mag is a 1988 Power Play (Powerquest) with a MSD 6al wired into the Thunderbolt system. I have done the MSD test for spark and that works, I changed the trigger in the distributor, I have power to the ign module and power to the red/white wire and I checked the kill switch in an older post it was said that if the green/white wire was touched to ground that it should produce a spark but that dose not happen. anyone have any ideas where I can look. Thanks in advance

Wire out the MSD and see if it runs. I had so much trouble with my setup like that I used to keep jumper wires handy so I could switch from tbolt only to tbolt w/ msd. Ultimately I removed the msds all together and never looked back. Other than that, make sure your tbolt module and distributor ground wires are good and have solid connections. Check for 12 volts at the + side of the coil with the ignition on.
