These distributors only go in one way. You probably have to turn the rotor to get everything to line up, but other than that they are hard to mess up.
That being said, assuming everything is on properly and it still won't line up. Then one of the cams could be off from it jumping time.
Do double check that its lined up though, connector facing front and cap facing up. I know it sounds elementary but i have seen crazier things lol.
