Sounds like you may have the distributor off when re-installing it. Check that #1 cylinder is coming up on the compression stroke and set at top dead center. Drop the distributor in with the rotor pointing at the #1 tower of the distributor cap. I am assuming that when you say new distributor, that it includes new ICM and coil pick-up.

That would be #1 piston on TDC on the compression stroke.
