Need Help! Engine Problems with my 5.0L.

Well first off im new here, so Hi to everyone.
OK so i have a problem with my 5.0 HO. Its a 87 HO stock. The only thing is it is carburated and has points. Let me start from the beginning, I was having trouble with it running right, it would stutter/bog so I thought it was the carb, after tooling w/ that and finally rebuilding the carb I came to the conclusion it wasn't the carb (although it was dirty) My next thought was the ignition, I have a distributor with elec. Ignition so i put that it, of course then it didn't start, i really didn't thing it would cuz the elec. ign. is shot. So i put back in the Dist. w the points and now it won't even start, I thought 180 out right, so i flipped it, nothing, flipped it again and well it sounds a little better but still won't start. What the hell is wrong? Im starting to think that the problem to begin with was the spark plug gap, but now I can't even to get the son of a BI*&H to start. Can someone PLEASE help me?
