Really am embarrassed.Not easy but I have to tell the truth here.After several days of trying to figure out why i was getting no spark and following all the info that this great group has supplied I found the problem today.It was all my own fault,I replaced the ignition switch and instead of using the ign connection I had placed it on the acc.How I found this out was by accident.I was checking for spark after cleaning and and rechecking everything.Again no spark,when I turned the key toward off I went to far to the left (acc) and I saw a flash in the tester.To make a long story shorter I investigated further and found I had wired the switch wrong.Once the change was made at the switch all plugs were firing a they should.I only hope all that responded to my post realize how much I appreciate their knowledge and thank them for the help.

Gary - don't feel bad. You're not alone! :D :D :D
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

My wife says I don't listen to her. - - - - - - - - Or something like that!
