jdm h22a swap in 97 accord, no spark, any suggestions?

Just finish putting a jdm h22a from a 93' lude front clip into my friends 97 Accord EX. The engine is not wanting to start, turns over and all that but will not fire. I checked fuel pressure and thats fine and im def getting fuel into the cylinders, but i have no spark. Ive check pretty much all of the wiring and its ok, the obd2 to obd1 ecu wiring is good, the wiring for the distrubtor and all the sensors(Crank, TDC, and cyl. position)inside the dizzy are good. Also checked the wiring for the throttle position sensor and map sensor and it look right. What else could be keeping the car from getting spark? Spark plug and wires are good, the engine ran when it was in the front clip with carb cleaner. Any suggestions or help would be great. Trying to get this damn car outa my garage.

are you sure the crank sensor is hooked up? (I can tell you know that obd1 h22s have it in the dist.)
What wiring harness are you using?
What do you mean by obd2 to obd1 wiring good? did you solider it or something?

I think i got this question...


DID YOU GROUND THE MOTOR>?

a buddy and i had the same issue, swapped out a k20 motor in a civic, no spark..... why you ask, he powdercoated the block and where he powdercoated it wasnt making contact and could not ground, i am thinking you just didnt ground it, or maybe an ECU/injector problem

my 2 cents.

is the timing in sink? (just throwing out ideas man)

even if the timing is a little off it should still spark.

bump for more ideas

hmm... i'd check fuses and ground. check your timing like tel said... sometimes that'll do it. but then again... hmm.... do it anyway. what ecu are you running anyway? just curious.
