May sound silly but-Does it start if you leave the air breather off ? Maybe a spark short . Its a very old adage but if you have gas-spark and compression it must fire,,, Unless the timing is off.....................Its that simple Good luck

What was it doing to start with that caused you to do all that work ?


p1351 is high voltage in coil circuit maybe a short somewhere. check out Engine-.codes.com and type in p1351. it gives a list of possible probs and fixes. im bettn ya got a short somewhere or bad connection.
