Replace distributor cap, rotor, and wires - Won't start

So I just changed my distributor cap, wires and rotor.

I've done this before, so i figured I could do a quick job here. Got everything back together, and engine won't turn over, just cranks.

I even tried to put all my old hardware back in, and no go. I'm stuck at this point, as she worked right before I did my tune up and those were the only 3 things that were touched.

The only thing I did different was put di-electric grease on the dist. cap terminals. Pulled everything off and gave it a spray with terminal cleaner. No luck.

I'm stummped..

Any insight?

Good news! Fired up and started! Don't know why but she did. Gave her some running time and some cold time. Fired up again!

Re-checked all of my wires 1,5,3,6,2,4 - Musta been a loosey some where!

All is well.

The time now is 08:53 PM.
