TRUCK WON'T FIRE UP AFTER REPLACING THE INTAKE MANIFOLD GASKET

2000 Chevrolet S-10 • 165,000 miles

We have been working on this truck for about a week now replacing the intake manifold gasket. We took everything apart to replace it and now have everything back together and now it won't start. We have taken the distributor out and we couldn't get it to seat back in the right place. We have tried everything from moving the gears on the oil pump to make the distributor seat back in to the right position to bringing number 1 piston to the firing position. We have tried everything to get this truck started and have run out of options. Can anybody help please? As soon as possible would be greatly appreciated.

@hmac300, I'm confused on what component each number is pointing to. @Cadieman, I will try this later, my girl is at work right now so I can't look at it yet. And if it's a bad heater core, how hard and how expensive is that to replace?

Also, @hmac300, how hard is it to locate the vacuum line for the heater core? And how can I find out if the actuators for the heater are working? Sorry, not very car literate.
