I went completely through the stop config wizard and can now jog the carriage in all directions including angles. But the second I try to run even a test file the z moves up and nothing else. I can feel the motors feel the motors like they are getting instructions, but no movement. Also the light closest to the parallel port and all lights on stepper controllers go out, like the amplifier isn't on now.I rewired between the breakout and stepper controllers, I also tried a different parallel cable

Can you upload your hal and ini files from the config directory.

Do you have an encoder on the spindle and is it wired?
You have spindle at speed pin in the hal file but it is not wired to any other signal so the machine keeps waiting for it to go true.
Omiting the line with it might make it move on, not sure if anything else has to be omited, but LinuxCNC is very good at pointing out errors, so just look at the debug portion of the error report, if you do get one.

Also LinuxCNC keeps moving on screen and like I mentioned I can feel humming in motors like they are receiving a signal, but not enough signal to move...

I FOUND an old file in a buried dir on a ext drive with a booklet from the CNC builder, in it the amplifier was pin1 not pin 17, that made an amazing difference...

Thanks everyone for the help greatly appreciate it
