Are you saying the engine wont turn over or that it will turn over and wont start. Also curious as to why you didn't change the O2 sensor if it was showing bad? An O2 sensor can cause a run lean condition. If you get it turning over and not firing get a helper and have them spray a small quantity of ether into the intake while your turning it over. If it fires then you have a fuel delivery problem. If it still doesn't you most likely have an ignition problem.
