Sounds like you accidently pulled the thin wire from you starter motor. Look at the connections at the end of the solenoid, mounted on starter motor.The thick red wire is Battery + next to that connection is a smaller male push- on terminal, locate loose wire (thin) in the same area and reconnect to male push-on terminal on solenoid or check if earth cable between body/battery to engine wasnt removed in the process.Also some vehicles you have to engage the clutch before starting, check for a switch located on clutch pedal where master cylinder connects to clutch pedal (Is clutch switch mounted and wiring connected?)

I have a 93 honda prelude vtec 2.2l drove and parked, will not start, just cranks over. replaced coil, starter, main relay switch, ignitor, plugs, getting fuel but will not start

Do you have fuel pressure? Is 12 volts available to the injectors with the key turned to run (use a 12 volt test light to check this). Have you checked the combination relay located behind the glove box on most Honda models??

Camshaft position sensor

my wild useless guess (on site it be 5min work)
is you failed to replace the HV spark wires 1 by one.
losing the timing order.?
sure, like 1million posts world wide, all say CMP/CKP are bad, few are.(most posters love to guess. and spend your cash)

it ran before, the belt went bad. right?
what tune up, just spark? only and filters.
or the timing belt. (dont skip that or you will bend the valves in the cylinder head)
no spark, at all 4 plugs.
you didnt remove the distributor?
my guess is this old post you found it.
the ECU in your car is old and can in fact report via lights , code lamps CMP or CKP bad. did you look for that?
its documented well and free at all honda forums. (not here)

here are the codes and tests for old OBD0 and OBD1 hondas
code 4? code 15, code 8/9? all kill spark or just fuel. see OBD1 link at bottom of page.

I just bought a 93 prelude with the 2.3l vtec the guy said that the engine was just rebuilt it has the dohc engine the valves are clicking he told me to run the car so the valves will seat??? then he...

not really. The engine uses hydraulic lash adjusters, so there is nothing for him to adjust. If the engine has been run at all, the valves should be seated. If not, maybe the guides were over-knurled. Can't really tell why they are clicking. Can he provide specifics of what was done to the engine? Does it have new lash adjusters? Were the guides knurled or what was done with the guides? What was done to the valves? Are the springs new? Are the camshafts new? etc. etc.
