87 Comanche motor cranks but no spark

I've have just put a new motor in a Comanche equipped with the reniex system. It was running fine until I swap the motor now it will crank but I'm getting absolutely no spark. I've changed my distributor, wires, and my CPS and still no luck. I've had a friend check my coil for resistance and he said it was fine so where do I go from here?
