Make sure battery has a full charge and connections all good. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse. Those are the basic checks, in my opinion. Let us know what your missing?

I did all that battery is full charged


If you have everything I mentioned and good compression, I don't know why it won't hit? The dist rotor turns when you crank it? After cranking it a little, what do the spark plugs look like, wet or dry? Can you check fuel trims? I don't know w/o looking at it? Timing ok?
