No spark to sprk plugs

Your distributor is basically a camshaft position sensor. You don't install it haphazardly just so the number 1 wire on the cap is where the rotor is in the distributor.

The engine has to be a TDC on the Compression Stroke when you install the distributor and the rotor has to be in a certain position. Read the attachment.

98 nissan pathfinder 3.0 wont start new distribitor no fire

What do you mean "the battery still no fire"?

Do you mean that there is no spark at the spark plug?
Have you pulled out a plug, grounded it and cranked the engine to check to see what colour (if any) the spark is?
If there is no spark at the plug, then either change the plugs if they look to be in very poor condition, or change the coil.
