Won't start after fuel rail upgrade

Believe what you see. Figure out how it happened later.
Did you pull the plug wires when you were doing the fuel rail work? Or remove the distributor? Many of these engines have been put together wrong and had their wires moved to "fix" the error. You probably put the wires back the way they're supposed to be when the rest of the engine is right. Put the timing mark on zero, with the cam lobes for #1 up, and see where the distributor rotor is pointing. It should be pointing just left of straight ahead (there's pictures out on the internet somewhere). Or do that and post a picture. Or remove the distributor and see where the drive tang is pointed.
Equal voltage on both coil posts is normal. It doesn't change until the distributor is spinning.
Here's some good information. You don't need all of it. http://atlanticz.ca/...utor/index.html

Good news. Now, back to those vacuum leaks...
Those two books are still worth looking through, The FSM and the Injection Guide. Nissan did a great job of describing how everything on their cars works.

I didn't know about this thread or I would have replied sooner. I see that you have the lime green topped Toyota injectors. They will not work with the stock Datsun EFI ECU.
The ones you wanted to switch to are in the thread below, second page and 8 posts down.

Yeah that's right an L28ET in an S13.

Holy moley. Didn't know you were running 312 cc (or 330, whatever, way too many cc) injectors. Since you went with Pallnet it's assumed you went with his injector recommendation for a stock ECU. The ECU is designed for a specific flow rate. It doesn't adjust.
The high impedance injectors will, actually, work with the stock ECU. With or without the dropping resistors. Not sure if the fine details of opening times matter with the primitive ECU, but they do open and close as they're supposed to.
