1986 Mustang, Carb 351w Igntion Problems

792 10
I have got the ignition box off of a 1985 5.0 carb my cfi v6 coil and my distributer off of a 1980 351w. I wired it all up like my wiring diagrams and all the websites say but when I pull the spark plug out and set it on one of the shock bolts I don't see any spark. My engine doesn't start I am waiting till next week for my gas line connecters to get here I put just a bit in the carb thinking maybe it would kick over but nothing just around and a around. Maybe I wired it wrong yet? If I understood the concept of the ignition I might be able to wire it but since I don't I am just guessing off the internet!

Help! Please! and thank you

My question was how to wire it
I will like paypal someone 5 bucks if they figure out how to wire it correctly
I got it! But now my starter solenoid gets fer real hot at the starter post. Wonder y that is?
Well I had the idea right for wiring it but when I soldered it I got the wires backwards and just messed it up. So now it sparks off the coil real good. Haven't tryed just a spark plug. I need the set my timing and bolt down the carb. I got my gas line connecters today and 5 of the 6 aren't what I wanted. O well I broke the end off my clutch fork hold down. Is there anyway to change the hold downs or just have to find a new fork?
