Default MSD Ignition Control troubleshooting Help

My MSD issue:



- I bought a MSD ignition control (6AL-2), a new blaster coil, and using my Distributor (has rotor button).

- Just rewired my car with a painless wiring kit.



Wired the Ignition control:

- Heavy red to constant power feed

- Black to body ground

- Orange and black wires to Coil (only ones connected to coil)

- White wire to black wire on Distributor

- The 12v Coil feed is the coil feed that comes with the painless wiring, this goes to 12 ignition control and also to red wire from Distributor.



Issue:

Turn the ignition on, Red light flashes on then off on the ignition control, Crank the engine and no spark is produced and light on ignition control does nothing.



Troubleshooting:

As per manual I touch the white wire to body ground, great it sparks all the way to the spark plug not just at the coil lead. As soon as I reconnect white wire to distributor and crank I get the same problem.

It seems whenever I try to wire up the distributor with the ignition control it wont spark under cranking, this is both at the spark plug and also at the coil.
