Changed can shaft in 88 Chevy now its not firing

Is it not firing as in no spark on the plugs, or is it not firing as in engine turning over and not starting?
An engine wont start for one of three reasons - one, no compression, two, no gas, three, no spark.
Start with no. three because it's the easiest to check. take off a plug wire, put something metal in there - phillips screwdriver, long nail, or if you're brave, you finger. Be careful, there should be anywhere from 20 000 to 30 000 volts in there, it won't kill you but it will make you say "darn" in a most unusual way. If there is no spark, there is your problem.
Secondly, check for fuel The easiest way is to spray a little Quick Start (ether) down the carb tube. If it fires now, that's your problem - no fuel.
Now for the worst part. Do you have compression? You worked on the cam shaft, so there is a likelihood you've got the timing wrong.
If you are unsure of the timing marks, you can check your valve timing (cam timing) on the valves.
Now this depends on what engine you have in the vehicle. Chevy made a bunch of models with a wide variety of engines.
You need to determine the opposing cylinders. On a six cylinder motor, that's easy. The firing order is 1-5-3-6-2-4, always (sorry, unless it is a V-6) On the straight six, the opposing cylinders are 1 and 6, 5 and 2, 3 and 4. What this means is that when cylinder no. 1 is up and has done its exhaust stroke, ready to go down for its intake stroke, its opposing cylinder (6) is at the top of its compression stroke, ready to fire for power.
What does all of this mean? If you look at the no 1 cylinder - always closest to the radiator, you need to turn the engine by hand until you see the valves "rocking", that is, the exhaust valve will move up at almost the same time as the intake valve is moving down. The opposing cylinder's valves will now both be closed.
Now, turn the engine until no. 6 is rocking, look at the front engine pulley and check that the timing mark is aligned with the mark on the block. If not, the valve timing is out and must be reset.
On a 4 cylinder, the timing could be either 1-3-2-4 or 1-3-4-2 or 1-4-2-3 Only VW and Porche boxer engines fire 1-4-3-2
Find out your fining order, the third cylinder will be the opposing cylinder to no. 1 and take it from there. V8's are a curse, but again, find out the firing order and the fifth cylinder will be the opposing one to no. 1. Good luck.

Mulitply cyclinder mis fire

Basically this means that the the car's computer has detected that not all of the engine's cylinders are firing properly.

A misfire diagnostic code P0300 indicates a random or multiple misfire. If the last digit is a number other than zero, it corresponds to the cylinder number that is misfiring. A P0302 code, for example, would tell you cylinder number two is misfiring. Unfortunately, a random misfire code doesn't tell you specifically which cylinder(s) is/are mis-firing, nor why.

Symptoms may include the engine may be harder to start, the engine may stumble / stumble, and/or hesitate and other symptoms may also be present.

Hope this helps and have a nice day.

You might want to look at that injector for that cylinder.I worked on a GMC Jimmy that did the same thing and I also changed all the sensors come to find out that my injectors and the spider assembly needed to be changed.

3.4 GM v6. dead skip on #4 cyl. Spark plug ok, wire ok, replaced injector. Still dead skip. Found cyl. by disconecting wires to injectors. #4 not affected.

The very first thing that you should do after finding a cylinder mis-fire that can not be easily explained such as a fouled spark plug, is to take a compression test especially of the mis-firing cylinder to be certain that the mis-fire is not caused by a mechanical problem, and I have seen people spend a lot of time and money trying to hunt down an electrical problem when the actual problem was a mechanical one, and no electronic part will repair a burnt or bent intake or exhaust valve.

Do you know how check the engine codes? Turn the key 3 times and the codes will be displayed where the odometer number is displayed.
If the code is 302 it is spark plug mis fire.
It could be a bad fuel injector.
