Hi. Was it running before you installed the distributor cap and rotor?
Ok. Are sure that you have all wires routed correctly? Please double check all the spark plug wires and make sure they are all correct. Which engine do you have? I will get you a diagram showing which wires go where.
replied. please refresh.

yes I am here. please allow me time to respond
Was it running before you did the cap and rotor?
Did you replace the spark plug wires as well? or just the cap and rotor.
Did you remove the distributor?
Then your timing is not the problem unless you turned the distributor. Maybe the button inside the cap is not present, or the rotor is not making contact. What engine do you have?
Did you install the rotor locking screw?
My suggestions are that if it was running before replacing the cap and rotor, and now afterwards it is not running, then the steps absolutely have to be retraced as the issue is related with that project. Either a plug wire accidently got plugged onto the wrong lug, or wires not fully snapped on, or the button missing or damaged, etc. If this happened not after the cap and rotor, but after the water pump, then check to make sure that nothing got unplugged. Do you get any kind of stumbling, popping, anything as you attempt to start?
oh, so it was NOT starting before the cap and rotor were done?
you did cap and rotor AFTER the water pump?
Unless something was unplugged and neglected to get plugged back in, the water pump shouldn't cause a no start condition. Have you thoroughly inspected the area and made sure absolutely nothing was left unplugged or disconnected?
