Rotate the rotor 180 degrees?

If you are getting spark and fuel the the engine should fire all other things being equal.

Have you tried a compression test yet?

Are your spark plug and fuel injector wires installed in the correct firing order?

Is the CEL ON?

Is the spark bright white-bluish or weak orange?

As mentioned already, you should compression test the cylinders if nothing else obvious is found.
