ok guys. thanks for alllll the help despite my lack of electrical expertise. i think we got it figured out. had a loose butt connector in one of the ECM wires, and now it has injector pulse and spark, but i think i have to super adjust the distributor now because when it cranks over and tries to fire it basically stops the motor dead in its tracks, as if its extremely advanced or something. might be due to having adjusted the distributor with both modules trying to feed the distributor previously. hoping so anyway. will let ya know after i re charge the battery as i ran it dead, LOL. thanks again you guys, you are a huge help.
