Default What would cause a lack of spark to the spark plugs?

1994 Honda Civic SI with D16Y8 swap. Motor rotates, has new wires, new alternator, wondering if there could be a malfunction in the distributor if so how would I check it and test it. Batterry has plenty of charge and grounds are all conected properly.

Quick way to check for spark is to pull a spark plug out, connect a wire to it, ground the spark plugs threads out to the engine block and have someone crank the engine while you watch the plug for spark.































Since you changed the plug wires, double check your firing order.















#1 cylinder is the closest to the belts (driver side)















It should be in the order 1-3-4-2 going clockwise when looking at the distributor cap from the passenger side.
