With your #1 cyl at TDC, & the distributor rotor is pointing correctly at the lug in the cap for the #1 spark plug, make sure both the intake & exh rocker arms are level.

If one rocker is lifting, you are 180 degress off on your distributor installation

Also, make sure the wires on the cap run clockwise looking down 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2
