Did you mess with the switch at all when you swapped out the wires? I'd start checking all the wires to the starter and distributor. Sounds like no current going there.

Did you change the engine harness only, or the inside harness also?
I would start by checking for power to the small starter solenoid wire on the starter with the switch in the Start (turnover) position. As I recall it should be a purple wire, ( havent worked on one in a few years, so I could be wrong). Also make sure it is attached to the proper terminal on the starter, as some GM starters had two small terminals, one to engage the solenoid, the other was an ignition resistor bypass.
If you do not have power at the wire, check the same wire right off your ignition switch. Could be as simple as a switch adjustment.
