Wire should go to the fuseblock IGN terminal not the fuseblock BAT terminal. Check to see if there is 12 volts on the wire.
It sounds like you are installing the HEI. Did this come from a running car?

If you hooked it to the "Bat" terminal it should run...you just wouldn't be able to shut it off(I made that mistake myself). Which brings us back to, did this HEI come from a running car? If it did...dude, from what I'm reading, it should be running. If you don't know if the HEI works... Is the built in coil good? The ignition module? Are the internal wires that connect these pieces good?

I haven't heard of anyone trying to install a HEI from a computer controlled vehicle before. How are you planning to get the vacuum to work?
