having trouble

28 yo
begginer restorer
1970 gmc p.u. timing
5.7L 350
replaced cam and lifters, replaced gears and chain...
2 timing marks on crank a triangle and a dot? which is right?
cam gear 1 dot. and cam has a pin so only one way to put it on.
step 1. i align dot and triangle...slow crank no start...checked tdc (not )
step 2. rerouted wires ...no start...
step 3. turned distributor 180" ......no start...
step 4. removed cam gear, turned crank until dot is at the top...
step 5. reinstalled cam gear, moved cam dot to crank dot (cam down crank up)
now have fast crank ....no start...
step 6. turned distrib. 180" again back to slow crank and still no start.

What am I not doing?
Yes there is fire and fuel...
