Question about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks
Set cylinder 1 to TDC on compression stroke, remove distributor and reset to stock marks. Generally there are timing marks for this. If you cannot locate the timing marks then note the direction that the rotor under the distributor cap rotates and reinstall it so it's pointing right at the cylinder 1 contact or just barely before when cylinder 1 is at TDC. That may get you close enough to start it. Then you will need a timing light to adjust the timing to the proper spec.
In the future mark the distributor cap and housing position relative to manifold or block prior to removal. Makes re-assembly a breeze.

If you had to loosen the engine mounts and raise or lift the engine to gain clearance you may have accidentally pulled apart an electrical connector or cracked the distributor cap when it hit the firewall. good luck

There will be marks on the cam gear and the crank gear. Some are dots, some are diamond shaped. You just line the two up so the top mark is directly over mark on the crank. You may have to turn the crank by hand which is easier with all the plugs out, to line it up. You will want to drain oil,change filter, and put in new oil to get rid of contaminated oil in oilpan.
If you fail, you are not talking about a lot of money to try to fix the top of the engine compared to engine replacement. For the most part, you could still tow it.
You could ask how much it would cost just to replace the gasket and let someone else bust their knuckles.

Are you sure you have correct timing? its definetly a fule problem, if timing is good then turn your key to the on position and try to listin for the fule pump to prime. While the key is in on position go to fuel rail, there is a valve on fule rail called sharader valve. Get a small screw driver and press valve in to check if car has fule pressure. if pressure is present then it is incorrect timing or possible bad cam sensor.
