avenger. I bought a new ignition switch,coil,
plugs,wires, cap, rotor and new battery. I'm getting
fuel and spark. And it just turns and turns. Every
with some starting fluid it won't start

Assuming everything was in working order before, and you are getting fuel and spark the only thing left really would be compression. I'm wondering if your distributer could be off 180° so your sparking on the exhaust stroke?. Just a thought.

I took it for a test drive and shut it off. Went to start it and it wouldn't kick over

I put the #1 cylinder tdc and pointer rotor to number one on distributor cap and still nothing. Any advice?
