I feel like an idiot now but I gotta figure out how to check and set the timing. When I put the distributor in I just put it in till it fell into place.
Still learning

Ok. Hopefully someone else can help provide some info. His plug wires are reversed and the engine will not crank when put in the correct order, only when reversed. Timing is soon to be checked. Anything to look for?

The distributor isnt put in right. You need to start and put it in and worry about the sequence. There is no doubt after watching the video.

Set the timing to point at number 1. Remember you can put it 180 out so make sure you are on the compression stroke. Then put the firing order right.

I put #1 at TDC and re done the wires so they are correct, wont start now. I was thinking about the crankshaft position sensor, if its bad, wont it give me the signs I'm getting?

It can be at #1 2 times. once for compression and the other for exhaust. If you have spark and no start you are probably on exhaust. Pull the #1 plug and put your finger over the hole. Feel if you are getting the air pushing against the finger as you turn the crank.

SHE IS ALIVE!!!!!!!
I did have the timing out 180.
I fixed that. put in a new CPS and the ol'e girl fired right up, no hard start or anything.
Drove around the loop and she drove like a champ, very pleased with the way she runs.
Thanks Que for all your help and patients. and everyone else who has been keeping up and giving me some ideas.
