THANKS THE TIMING LOOKS TO BE SET RIGHT. THE TRUCK STILL WILL NOT START COULD THE DESTRIBUTOR BE 180 DEGREES OUT?

Yep rotor could be positioned wrong. Crankshaft pulley marks and front cover marks should align and the dist. Rotor should point to plug wire #1 on the cap.

THE TRUCK STILL IS TURNING OVER REALLY SLOW AND THERE IS A LITTLE TAPPING NOISE BUT WHEN YOU MOVE THE DISTIBUTER CAP THE NOISE STOPS COULD A BAD DIST. CAUSE THAT?

Crankshaft sensor may be at fault instead of the distributor
