won't start after wireset and plugs

Hey guys,
I have an 85 Impala with the ccc qjet and 305.
I recently bought and installed a new summit brand wireset and new Ngk #6630 spark plugs.

when I first tried to start it, gas shot out of the carb and popped

So I triple checked the wires made sure their where they need to be, same thing

Finally I pulled #1 plug and turned the crank until the timing marks lined up on the compression stroke, the rotor is lined up with #1 on the cap. Re-stared it, Same result

It ran fine before the change

At this point I'm just confused, what could be wrong?
Any input is appreciated
