88 D100 won't start after rebuild


I have a 88 d100 v6 that had a leaking and stuck rear main and some toasted rod bearings. I did a rebuild on it and now i'm having trouble getting it to start.

I have good compression, and i've double checked the cam timing - so I know i'm good there.

I have fuel - i can see a good amount coming in through the TB injectors. I replaced the FP for good measure.

I have spark, but it seems weak - i put a voltmeter on the positive of the coil and i'm only getting 5.5V - the manual says 12v.

Can anyone help steer me in the right direction? I was thinking of checking the voltage going into the computer, to make sure i have 12v in.
