Angry engine won't start

i have a 95 chevy sub-1500 2wd fuel inj. carb.
i was in an accident 4 months ago, and the subs front clip was totaled. the only damage to it were body, radiator, and condenser, the engine still ran 2 weeks later at the insurance pool.

2 weeks ago i had time to put everything back together. Now that i have the damn engine won't start. It won't crank, turnover, nothing, not a single noise from the engine. It seems as if there is no power to ignite it.

I have replaced the battery with a new. bench tested the starter which is fine. took out the plugs to see if it seized, it didnt. Now i dont know what else to do. the alternator is about 1 year old. I have power inside the car. my alarm and power accessorys work fine.

anyone have a clue of what i should do next? Im po and without welfare so i cant see a mechanic.

Sorry, wrong year. They are located under the black cover on the passenger side firewall. Check them by poking into the wire with a test light.
