Angry Please Help!

I am new to the forum sorry for the post so soon. I just finished my swap. It was a 94 V6 auto > 94 5.0 h.0 5 speed. I bought a donor car with everything from rad. to the exhaust tips. I just finished installing everything. Rear is in, trans and motor, engine, harness, computer, vac unit inside fender, clutch/brake assembly, gauges, ect. Its a GT now! The car turns over but does not start. The fuel pump kicks on, as its cranked u can smell the fuel. There is no spark wat so ever. I replaced the dizzy. Still nothing. I took everything off my car computer, ignition control module, coil and installed it on my dads 95 5.0 and his starts right up. I have 6 (six)!!! grounds going to the motor/body. Rotor is spinning. With ignition on im getting 12.35v into the red coil wire on the connector. I need help. Someone said it could be the crankshaft position sensor but the car does not have one nor my dads. Another person today said cam position sensor? I did not do the noid light on the injectors yet. This is about as far as i went.

Overview. Full swap. New rotor, cap, dizzy, plugs, wires, computer coil and module test fine on dads car. WTF is it!

Thanks for all the help in advance guys!

See if the computer will do a self check in your swap vehicle, to confirm its getting power and wiring is ok, you may get lucky and get a code as well. I see your a Jersey Boy, bet you got a hell of a deal on the package

Here is are a few wiring diagram to test power and ground at the distributor ignition control module
and ECM.
