Could be a problem with the valve and ignition timing. Remove distributor cap have helper crank engine over is the rotor turning?

Check your fuel pressure if its within specs and for injection pulses at the injectors

You got nice spark, correct fuel pressure -now all you need is compression-check it and comeback-You can have both but if the valve and ignition timing is off-she'll never start-
