Default Starting problem

My 95 EX has been running like crap lately. I finally cleared all of my engine codes (had a bad ECU, then had to fix a 10 code) but it still seemed to want to stall while idling and when I would accelerate it would start to bog down.

I decided the next step was to replace the cap and rotor. Now the damn thing won't start up. I first noticed something odd when I tried to crank the engine because the rotor screw was in the wrong spot. When I had my woman turn the ignition, the rotor wasn't turning. All I got was this really loud ticking sound. I then pulled the whole dizzy off to make sure that was fine (which it was).

I then replaced the rotor and cap and reassembled everything. Upon starting, all I get is the loud sound. It almost sounds like firecrackers. Also, I should note that this is all being done with a trickle charger/jumper connected which is why I don't think the battery is the issue. Though the battery is damn near shot so who knows.

Any thoughts on where to go next is appreciated. I got all weekend to mess with it.
