Hi there.... double check that all your timing marks are correct with the #1 cylinder at tdc. make sure that the distributor iscorrect also.check that the rotoris at the #1 wire when your at tdc.
If everything is good and you still can't start it, try rotating the distributor clock wise or counterclockwise and see if it will start. turn the distributor small amounts though. Hope this helps you
