I would bet the distributor is 180 degrees off time. Lift the distributor a little and turn the rotor to point in the opposite direction and see if it starts. This is actually a very common error with engine transplants, especially if you set the timing gears with dots facing each other. That sets up timing on #6 rather than #1. Strange...I know! Been there!
