Sounds like you're part way there. At least it's cranking and you got spark.
Should check for fuel to the plugs.
The distributor is probably where part of your problem is at.
Did you mark the old one and match it with the new one or just drop the new one in?
If you did you need to pull it and turn the engine to Top Dead Center for #1 cylinder on compression stroke and align and make sure the rotor points to the #1 terminal on the distributor cap with the distributor installed.
Do that and if you're getting fuel it should start.
That noise probably is the starter. I'd fix the timing first and try to get it started and then deal with that.
Make sure your battery's fully charged trying to start it.
Good luck. Let me know your progress
