You probably have a fuel delivery problem. Instead of the shot gun approach of replacing things at random you need to narrow it down, Check to see if you are getting spark at the plugs. Check for fuel delivery. See if you can hear the fuel pump running and check the fuel filter. Try putting a small amount of fuel into the intake, if it starts and runs for a second or two then you have narrowed it down to the fuel system.
