Default No Spark

Well I just replaced my ignition module(igniter), Rotor, cap, PCV valve, Plugs and wires and fuel filter. I went to go start it and it wouldnt and it turns out I have no spark. I popped apart the distributor to check and all the wires are connected fine. I was wondering if the spark plug wires being connected in the wrong order could cause this. If so does anyone have a site or something that shows which wires go where on the cap. IF it isnt this the only thing I could think of would be a broken wire somewhere. Oh yea its a 1989 DX

even if the wires were hookedup wrong it would most likely start just run really rough and miss, have you checked the resistance in the spark plug wires?

Did you have spark before you did all the work?

Could be the coil.. it's internal to the distributer..
I've had to change mine before..

I had problems before I worked on it but it still started fine. It would die whenever it heated up because of the ignition module. I had the coil checked and its fine. Checked the fuses they are all fine. Tried jumping it and that didnt work. I had my dad and uncle go over it also. SO the only thing I can think of would be a broken wire
edit: I havent checked the resistance on the wires but the wires and plugs are both brand new. But Ill check that tommorow just in case.
