It takes 4 things to happen to make an engine run 1) fuel 2)spark 3)compression 4)air... before going back to the "spark" issue... have you checked if you have pressure at the fuel rail??? Unfortunately if the distributor has been removed, it can cause more than just no spark problems if reinstalled wrong. In fact, it can cut off the fuel by screwing up the injector timing (if this happens, you gotta go to someone who knows how to retime the fuel injectors). BTW...the distributor no longer controls timing...the crank sensor does. Lastly, are there any codes? have you tried spraying starter fluid down ye 'ol throttle body and crank engine?
