Ignition switch? What exactly does it do when you turn the key? Is the starter engaging? I know you said dist, just checking everything. Check all the grounds and clean/check all electrical connections.

I think in this situation you need a Bentley manual and need to start checking out all wires that have to do with the ignition system, this is assuming your computer is good. You could have a bad connection on a wire, break in a wire inside the housing, maybe somebody wired something backwards? I would check a wiring diagram and start checking continuity, and double check everything is wired correctly. How is your Hall sender?
