Did you forget to mark what position it was originally installed in? Or maybe put the spark plugs back on in the wrong order? The only thing I can think of if you did both of those is to turn the engine to TDC then set the distributor to fire the #1 cylinder and make sure it stays there when you're re-installing it.
