As you have replaced everything that could have been a problem then one can only assume that some of your new parts are bad, coil output maybe low enough that it can't jump the small gap between the distributor rotor and the cap electrode, or the rotor is of the resistor type and the resistor is defective, caps carbon brush is damaged, defect in the cap causing spark to arch directly to ground.

Could it be the repair done to the wires in the loom that you did?

It shouldn't did each wire by it self

If you had messed up you would not have spark at the coil.
