Default rebuid help engine wont start

i took out my sis d15 cause it had a thrown rod and gave her my d15. rebuilt everything, put it in and now the check engine light dosent come on. i tryed to start it but all it does is turn. i have changed the timeing like 100 times. i kno the ecu works cause ive seen it turn on. what would cause this. bad distributor, bad wiring ? im lost cause i havent touched the ecu or the internal wiring or the engine wiring. all fuses are good too plzzz help

My first guess would be spark. Check all your grounds, all your connections, make sure the dizzy is connected and then check for spark.

okay i checkd for spark and im getting that. but jus in case i jus changed the rotor and dizzy cap. all grounds are good. umm i assume that the gas was sitting in the tank for about a year before i got the car. it was on E so i put in like half tank then put in one of those solution things if theres water. ive got it to start for three seconds and thats cause my foot was flooring the pedal and as soon as i let it go it bogged out.

pull the cluster out and check the bulb, somebody may have removed the cel bulb to hide the cel.
