If u replaced and still wont start. Did you make sure to line up the rotor on bottom of new distributor with were it was on old one when you took it out? If you did and your not getting spark move to your crank pos sensor. Test for control signal with test light. It should blink when crank engine. If your not gettong spark at distrub do the same. If crank pos is good and fire is present at distrib then check for fuel. If getting fire and fuel you probably have timing issue
