If you've cranked the engine over very much without starting, your new cam is probably toast. It's supposed to fire right up and run with little or no delay, otherwise one or more of the cam lobes will be worn down and your new cam is trash. I'd check to make sure you're not 180 degrees out of time in the distributor (number 6 is firing instead of number 1). I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I speak from first hand experience. Make sure the engine is timed right before you turn the key.
