95 distributor install problems

I have a 95 GT convertible (5.0) and the problem I have is this, I needed to have the pickup coil changed , it's on the distributor well, the person who changed it for me somehow ruined the distributor, it had to be pried out (by a mechanic) with the tire iron, the mechanic said everything was OK in the block so now I have a new distributor, I've done everything the right way installing it and my car still won't start, I've tried everything I know how to and no start. Can anyone give me any help on this? and yes I'm a girl

After removing the distributor it is hard to get a new one in without affecting the timing. How did you reset base timing?

I took out the #1 plug and did the pressure test. Good news though, I got it running today, the base of the disrtibutor was to big and had to be slightly sanded doun then it went right in and the timing was 180 out.

yea but yesterday the temp starting shooting way up and pinging and knocking going up hills so now it's back to the search for answers to that, it's not the belt or pulleys, the timing was set with a timing light, anti-freeze is good, no rad. leakssoooo. either the thermostat or water pump????? any suggestions?????
