Ok I give I need to ask,

I have a 1982 Ford Bronco 302 5.0L

I have replaced the timing Gears Recently
I have replaced the Harmonic Balancer
I have replaced the Crankshaft Pin
I have replaced the Distributor Cap & Rotor
I have replaced the Starter Solenoid
I have replaced the Battery
I have replaced the Positive Terminal & Cable
I have replaced the Negative Terminal & Cable
I have replaced the Plugs
I have replaced the wires
I have replaced my ignition coil
I have tested my starter
I have tested my alternator

I have checked (2 times) the timing gear alignment (wasnt fun at 2am this morning)
I have set the engine at TDC (top dead center) 2 times to make sure i was on compression stroke
I set the Rotor at #1 at TDC
I changed the Oil
I changed the Oil Filter
I changed the Coolant
I changed the Air Filter
I changed the Fuel Filter
I changed the Air Cleaner Filter
I changed the PCV Valve

ok I don't get spark at the plugs

I replaced the MSD Coil again just to make sure it was still ok

Still no spark!

things I havent changed>

Pick Up Coil
Ignition Module
Spark Delay Valve

Engine Cranks but will not start, engine turns fast but no start, I dont get back firing, I dont get sputtering, I dont get anything but the engine turning.

I think it could be the placement of the Distributor, the previous owner removed it and didnt mark it on the manifold, but we changed the timing gears so the crankshaft had to be spun to line the timing marks up so I had to TDC and reinstall but the position may be off, if anyone has a 302 in an 82 please can you post some pics of the engine???

Thanks for any help

Replace the ignition module. Its a $20 part. If youre getting no spark, it's probably the culprit.
