Exclamation "71 Chevelle with no spark

We have been working on her for about a month installing a new key swith and and key swith rack and an AC delete kit. During this process we discovered a bad ground. we fixed that and now have a good ground everywhere. here is a list of what we know the problem isn't.
Started (new)
Neutral safety switch (in the right position)
Coil (new) (We have voltage 12.5V across the coil when key is in both the starting and running positions)
Plugs (new)
Plug wires (almost new)
Wiring harness (we have gone over everypart of it)
Man this is kicking our proverbial [email protected]%^

The only thing that we have not, as of today, checked is the electronic ignition (we installed the kit almost a year ago)

If anyone has any suggestions please help, it would be great to drive the thing.

Re: "71 Chevelle with no spark

sounds like you have a points type distributor with a conversion kit. put a set of points/condensor in it, see if it works.
