What voltage do you have to the distributor? That is all the resistor does, is to cut voltage back to the distributor after cranking. You say it has spark? Timing order correct? Is the governor/throttle butterfly opening? If you spray staring fluid in the carburetor will it try to run? Have you ran a compression test on the cylinders?
