CADILLAC DEVILLE DISTRIBUTOR PROBLEM

1979 Cadillac Deville • 125,000 miles

While doing a tune up on my cadillac, I changed out 4 plugs on the3 drivers side, then changed the rotor, and cap. I attempted to start it and it would only crank. I had the module checked, it was goos, the coil in the distributor was bad so I replaced it, and still nothing. I did not do anything but pull the old distributor, changed the wires one at a time, put a new rotor and cap on it and replaced it on the engine. When it wouldnt fire I pulled the coil fron inside the distriutor cap aznd replaced it, the module was goos so I secured it back in the distributor. I still can not get it to fire. Any suggustions?

Y did u only replace 4 plugs? If the ran before u need to check the wires at the distributer they are off. There should be a 1 on the top thats where #1 wire goes then the firing order goes clockwise. 18436572 start here. Dose it have spark?
