Check for spark at coil wire, if no, check for spark at coil, (for no spark, check coil connections distributor plug-ins, and ground connections in area repair preformed. And all fuses.) (If spark at coil wire, Check that coil wire is in center of cap, If ok, reinstall old parts.) test system for operation. Maybe damaged rotor button.

Might be as simple as checking the routing of the plug wires, you might have them in the wrong position if you didn't remove one at a time.

You could have a bad TPS (throttle position sensor).
