Did you also but the head to tdc? Do you hear knocking when you try an turn it over? Did you mess with the distributor?

Yea I did & yea but my rotor that spins inside the distributor is kinda wasted but see when I first got the car I drove it to my house & it would start right away but I'm guessing that could b it huh???
Most likely i would say go get a new rotor an cap if you think you broke it

Can you provide a little more information?

We would all love to help but, we don't really have a ton of info on what has been done.

With what I am reading.. I would absolutely replace cap and rotor 1st (since you are going to have to do it anyway).

As a side note.. recheck your timing marks. The 1st time I ever did one I was actually a tooth off because I used the timing mark on the case and not the block.

Good Luck.
