It's a duralast. We have to advance the timing on the distrubutor to even get it to start. Yesterday when we tried it the distributor was set where it was supposed to be so no start.

After checking through previous replies and the data again, I seem to have missed out one important factor which you have written and repeated in last post.
Engine does not start with distributor in original position. This seems to indicate a fault with the ignition timing and the most likely cause would be a skipped timing belt.
A compression test might have shown the results. Remove the upper timing belt cover and check the camshaft markings to see if they are correct.
