You might check to make sure the plug wires are not on the wrong plug.
Also make sure the plg wires are not damaged from pulling on and off.
There are other things to check depending on what things you did to do the tune up

What would cause a 2004 Suzuki Verona quit firing after changing the plugs

If nothing else was removed, did you put the correct spark plugs in it?
Sometimes an off brand of spark plug will cause a problem. I would recommend NGK spark plugs.

What brand of plugs did you use? Nissan engines are very picky, they only like NGK Spark Plugs, if you used a different brand than that your engine will run poorly and misfire.

Well a new set of spark plugs is in order.The fuel most likely has fouled the spark plugs.It is fireing is it not?Fuel octane boost with tune up(ngk brand spark plugs)air filter and a gas dryer(HEET).will help.But do the tune up,if the engine has ignition spark.If you are using anything but the oil specified for the beetle,then change the oil and use the weight the manufacture specifies for the vehicle.I feel,if the engine ignition is fireing,that if you do all these things,and use the octane boost,and the heet additives,the car will perform.

1985 720 truck 2.4 (z24) need picture where spark plug wires go

You have the NAPS Z (nissan anti performance system haha) emissions engine. the dual plugs provide a hot spark for exhaust gas reburn and lowered tailpipe emissions. both plugs fire at the same time.
It is not really a good engine platform for high performance modification as its limited by the NAPS Z cross flow cylinder head design, its best to leave them mostly stock. I have owned several of the 720 king cab pu's and can attest to their durability, fuel economy, and reliability when properly tuned and maintained.
