Question about Cars & Trucks
Can you get a small dremel tool there and cut a slot, making it so you can fit a flathead screwdriver to the head of that screw?
if not, or you have round out the middle of the screw and can't get a locking needle nose pliers to grip that head, you may have to use an "easy out" tool or "screw extractor"
pre-soak the threads of that screw first though to help loosen that bolt from it's deathgrip

Good luck (remember rated this).

You say you replaced the spark plugs and wires, but didn't say if you had spark from them. Suggest you plug a wire and see if you have spark to the chasis ground. If not then you will have to troubleshoot the firing side. If you have spark, then you need to find out if you are getting fuel to where it is supposed to go.

Usually you can loosen the mounting bolt and turn the distributor.
Be sure and mark the position before you move it.
