    Sounds like you crossed your wires....what size of motor do you have, 2.2, 2.5, 2.6, 3.0, 3.3, 3.8L?

I have a 1988 ford F150 4.9L VIN code (Y) .I had a bad head gasket and a bad head so i replaced both of them. Now that everything is back together i can get the engine to crank but not fire over.

I would suggest that you have incorrectly timed the engine.The proper way is to set number one cylinder to top dead centre on the compression stroke, if you look at the harmonic balancer on the front of the engine you should see a groove that marked top dead centre.With the engine at set at top dead centre take the distributed out of its mounting.
with the cap removed, you should find a small market on the top face of the distributor body.
This might only be a small mark but it is on the flange where the cap normally sits.
When you insert the distributor the mark on that distributor casing should line up with the distributor rotor button. You may have to remove the distributor slightly so that you can line up the rotor a button.
You may in fact have to do this two or three times until you get the marks lined up.
Then check the firing order of your engine, this is normally marked somewhere on the engine.
Once you have done this you should find the engine will start, you may have to adjust the advance on the distrubor to 4 to 12 degrees before TDC with a timing light.

I have a 94' gmc sierra 4x4 1500 z71 then it won't start after i touched the distributor cap actually i replaced it. the parts look the same so i thought it was the coil then i did bt still no...

If all you did was replace the distributor cap and now it won't start. Either the cap is the wrong one, or it is faulty, take it back to where you bought it and have it replaced for another one. Make sure it is the correct one for your model.
When you took the cap off, did you remove the rotor button also? If so did you remember to put it back, don't laugh it is a common mistake.
Something else to check is that all the plug wires are snug in the distributor cap. Test this by pushing down on the actual wires and not the caps. Some times they don't go in far enough.
A couple of other things to check in the cap is for 'tracking/arcing' you will see this by taking the cap off and looking inside it and if it is tracking you will see a what looks like a hairline crack, this is from the electrical charge arcing out.
Check the little carbon rod that sits in the top of the distributor cap make sure it springs in and out and isn't broken.

I removed my distributor cap. And I put it back on. I tried starting car up. But it wont. I believe I accidently change timing. How do I put it back on right timing?

Unless you removed the three bolts that hold the distributor in, you would not have changed the timing. If you did remove the three bolts, then it is likely that you put the distributor in and did not line up the cam with the distributor shaft tangs and now either the distributor or the cam is broken. If you just removed the cap then you may have broken off the spring loaded graphite connectors that protrude between the cap and the coil, or the center electrode on the cap. If you removed the wires that attach to the cap, then you may have put them back on wrong and you will need a diagram or another car that shows you where they should go.

Truck wont crank. we have put new distributor cap, rotor button, coil pack, plugs, wires, and fuel pump. we also checked our firing order.

you said you repl dist cap that means you don't have a crank sensor you have electronic ing module. remove your elec ing module have it tested most auto parts stores could test your module, or check your coil at the neg terminal. should have power. if not you lost your primary volt from your batt.your secondary power is coming from your electronic ing module from the module to the pos terminal on the coil, when the eng cranks,from the coil to the dist cap , from the dist cap center to the rotor then out to the plugs,this all happen pervided the timing belt or timing chain is ok. the cumbustion chainber needs 3 things , thats fuel, air, and spark.

Took the distributor out and cleaned it then put it back in and now the truck wont crank but tries to do so. need some tips please

Did you take out the ENTIRE Distributor or just the cap?

If you took out the entire Distributor, and put it back in, there is a possibility that you put it in backwards. The bottom of the Distributor has a 'notch' in it. If you turn it 180 degrees the wrong way, and put it back in, your truck will not start, because it is in effect 180 degrees out of alignment with the timing.

If you only took out the cap, refer to your owners manual (Hanes is best) for the plug wire placement in reference to the firing order, and make sure all the plug wires are in the correct locations. Also, make sure your plug wires are seated all the way down onto the plugs, and the cap is secured tightly onto the base of the Distributor.

Make sure your Coil Wires are also seated properly to the coil and the Distributor.

Clean the battery connections. Remove the battery connections, clean them and reinstall.

Changed distributor cap now car will not crank

You should check to make sure that the rotor button is in place. Also check the coil wire and the fire orderr to make sure that no wires are crossed. These are pretty much the only reasons why your car won't crank with the distributor cap change.

91 honda accord wont crank

There is a sensor under the left hand side of the dash that would not allow it to start, provided that you have replaced the electronic spark module inside the distributor first, which is what it sounds like it would be, When you say you replaced the distributor I assume you replaced it complete!
