1999 Mustang v6 Changed Spark Plugs and Wires But Still Isn't Turning Over

As I stated in the title a few days ago I went to my car to start it and it didn't crank up, I knew already that I had been having a misfire in my #1 cylinder but hadn't got around to changing it, so I changed out the wrong plug but the car still cranked up. So I got out and went inside the next day I go to get in my car and it doesn't crank up. I change out all the spark plugs and the wires and everything is in the correct firing order I'm sure. And now it still doesn't crank up, I thought I might have tripped the fuel pump shut off switch so I reset it, still not turning over. I think it might just be the fuel pump itself anyone have any other ideas..?

If you want to check a few things first need to find out what your losing fuel or fire. You can get an inexpensive spark tester to put on plug end of wire to see if its getting fire or a test light will work. If your getting fire find the fuel pump hot wire and using test light see if you've got hot when the ignition is turned on. If your getting power to the pump then spray carb Cleaner in intake. Try this and see what your not getting and repost.
