Most likely problem is the distributor, make sure it's #1 TDC on the power stroke. It's easy to get it #1 on the exhaust stroke. If all the compressions going out the exhaust, there's no fire.

do you know for a fact that your not getting spark? have you actualy checked to see if your getting spark? like EAGLE said it could be in the timming, also ive seen people plug the ignition module (on distribuitor) in wrong and bend the pins(the metal pieces that actualy make the contact) so theres no connection
