390 Ford engine

I just rebui;lt a Ford FE and I'm having problems getting it started, The timing is right and the firing order is right. The compression on the 5 holes I checked is good enough to run, the spark plug wires are caring juice but the spark seems to be yellow and I don't know if this is sufficient to start it up. The distributor was in the engine before the rebuild and the engine ran well. I checked 5 wires and they are all careing juice, the engine has kind of hit a very little. Any and all suggestions will be appreciated.
