I know this might be obvious but the obvious is often the problem. Did you replace the coil wire that goes from your coil to the distributor cap? Also, double check to be sure that your wires are connected in the correct order. A little more clarification might help. Does it turn over? Does it just click? When you turn the ignition key then let off does the car clunk or make a wheezing sound?

Testimonial: "Very good....gave me the answer I needed"
This is kind of a long shot but if it is difficult to start after sitting all night but then starts just fine during the rest of the day then you may be just a pound or two low on fuel pressure. This engine needs a minimum of 60 psi of fuel to start properly. If you have only 59 psi it will crank and crank and finally start but will behave all day long as if nothing was ever wrong. You could also have a leaky fuel regulator or injector that is causing it to be partially flooded when you attempt to start it but usually those problems bothers more after the engine is warmed up. Even some new fuel pumps won't put out the needed 60+ psi and sometimes the fuel pressure regulator can go bad and not allow the pressure to build up to the 60+ psi range. The only true way to know for certain what the actual pressure is to have someone test it with a very accurate test gauge. Hope this helps out a bit and good luck.
