Sure your getting spark..fuel. How do you know your getting fuel? Did you try to prime it through the throttle /air intake?
How did he try to set timing? You have to have a scan tool that will do timing.
When you get #1 piston to top dead center where is rotor pointing ..should be at #1 on distributor cap.
Need to check fuel pressure has to be at least 58 psi and hold this..no drop in psi.
You can check it with just key on ..does not have to start.
Timing will jump all over unless you do it with a good scan tool ..have to set to timing ....hold rpm,s at 1100 set timing by turning dist.
Will set at 2 degrees before or after top dead center. Tighten dist. recheck. But you will need to get rotor pointing close to#1 to start ..if it is timing.
Might be fuel pump or fuel regulator hence added fuel ran bad ..oh how about fuel filter maybe bad.
If you get it running use scan tool to check others fuel trims ect.
