it sounds like it wants to start but wont fire. so im guessin either the wires are on the distributor wrong or the timing is not set right. what is it ?!?!

do you have the firing order correct?
are all the plug wires firmly connected?
is the carb getting gas?
is there voltage to the distribuitor?

check those things first..

1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 is the firing order, going clockwise around the cap..

also helps to be sure that the rotor is indeed pointing to position #1 on the cap when cylinder 1 is on TDC compression stroke...

to check for voltage, well, I'm not sure what color the wire will be, so you can always get a spark tester at the parts store, and use that to see if theres spark.. if you have spark, then you have power..

sometimes the little modules inside the HEI burn up also..
