Question about 1986 Toyota Corolla 2 Door
If you still haven't gotten this solved, try rotating the engine 360° and line up the timing mark to TDC. Remove the distributor cap and check that the rotor is pointing at the #1 electrode of the distributor cap. If it isn't, remove the distributor and reinstall. Again, check that the rotor is pointing at the #1 electrode. You may have to rotate the distributor a little to get the timing just right. Should start up.
I also have a 1986 Corolla and it just turned over 300,000 miles. What carburetor kit did you use. Mine has never been overhauled.

Are you sure you didn't damage the distributor connector? check it carefully, lock into the distributor for any pin problems there, or better yet buy a rebuilt distributor, I am sure the issue is there.
