Even with a new distributor cap you need to check for spark. Is there spark to the plugs? If you are getting fire, compression and fuel at the correct time - you should be starting. Did it stop running suddenly? Have you eliminated the timing belt? Does it turn over normally or faster than usual? Does it sound like it wants to start - if so it could be a restricted fuel supply.
You must have the plug leads in the wrong place on the distributor. Firing order is 1-3-4-2 Remove the distributor cap. There is a tiny mark on the aluminum body where the cap sits on it. Turn the motor clockwise by hand until the rotor lines up with this mark. #1 plug lead should be in the distributor cap hole closest to the rotor in a clockwise direction. If the motor still does not start rotate all the plug leads 180 Deg.
Sounds like you have the firing order right but your off on the #1 on the distributer. Every time you get an explosion coming from the carb its misfiring. Find the #1 on dist and continue with firing order
