I need some help!!!

I have no spark on my car, bone stock 502 with HEI.

I have power to the distributor and no spark to the plugs. I have tried an other distributor and cap with the same results.

So any help would be appriciated.

Are you running the distributor off the original resistor wire or did you run a new wire to the fuseblock?

Take a look at the wire going to the HEI BAT terminal. It should not have a woven or cloth-like coving on it. If it does, it's the old resistor wire and needs to be replaced. A resistor wire will measure 12 volts if removed from the BAT terminal and confuse things. The HEI does not like a resistor wire.
If it does look like it has been changed to a normal plastic wire, how was it attached? Soldering it on at the bulkhead connector can cause problems. Easiest way to hook up the HEI is to run a #10 from the IGN on the fuse block.
