If you are sure you are at TDC, on compression stroke, put your thumb or finger over the plug hole and feel the compression, this tell you it's the compression stroke, then adjust the distributor, if it wont start now you have problems with the module, coil, or pick-up. Or a few bad tune up parts. Did the service engine soon light come on?
