Have you checked for spark? Inserting a screw driver in a spark plug boot and holding in near metal on the engine while someone else cranks the engine will indicate spark or no spark.

Rotate the crankshaft to line up the timing mark on the crankshaft pulley and remove the distributor cap and see if it is lined up with cylinder number one.
The reason I asked about the distributor is these distributors can be installed 180 degrees out from the correct position.
