I replaced the distributor and my car wont start any ideas as to why it still wont run?

Maybe you put the distributor in wrong or the distributor wasn’t faulty to begin with. A little hard to tell with the lack of detailed information.

the distributor was put in by a mechanic but still wont start from what i understand the distributor was an issue in these cars any other ideas?

No, no other idea. WHY was the distributor changed? If it was changed for a no-start condition, it must not have been the cause. If you tell us the symptoms, somebody will have mucho ideas.

Yes, the distributor was changed because wouldn’t start. I pulled up to a place and parked turned off car and came back out to start it and it turns over but wont start. It has no spark to plugs.
