So its ether ignition or fuel. 2 types of carbs came that year depending on if 5.2 or 5.9 so you gotta give more info. Pics of engine bay help the most

The Magnum series of engines didn't start until '92 for the 3.9 and 5.2, '93 for the 5.9. A '86 model is a LA series unless it's been swapped.

And the 5.9/360 switched to Rochester Quadrajet in 1985, so I'm curious as to what all is changed.

While not related to your no fire issue, the front axle looks to have selectable locking hubs. In 86 only the Dana 60 would have those, the 44 would be CAD. Congrats on scoring a 60 if that is what it is.

If it’s really a magnum we need to know what kind of ignition they used to convert it, when I did mine I used the Mopar ignition from summit, but I’ve seen some real hack jobs when people do the swap. Can you get us some under hood pics

Good observation, but also keep in mind, many lock the CAD and install locking hubs. Or like a few of mine, I have the CAD still working, and have locking hubs. Why? because they came that way.
