I've got everything wired up. Not getting a spark though.

- The ignition switch is on, and I have 12 v at the small red wire on the box.

- Coil test showed .8 ohms primary, 5k secondary

- When I check for spark by jumping the green/purple connector I get no spark at coil wire to ground.

what else can I try?

I am hooking up a MSD now, it says to hook small red wire to 12 volt when the key is on so turn on your key and use a test lite to find good power source, after that there are only 2 wires to the coil and 2 wires go to the battery. the 6A box is hooked to the dist. I do know if this helps but you can message me back and we can go into it further if needed.

When I installed all my msd stuff, my 6al was dead right out of the box. Checked everything for an hour plus thinking I had done something wrong. Finally went down to lordco told one of my buddies who works there what was happening and grabbed a new box. Plugged it in and the car started instantly! Crazier things can happen

Ya I had a 6A box go bad last year, one time it would start, next time not, replaced the box and starts every time.
