1987 Ford F150, 5.0L, 302 v8 automatic, 120k miles.
I removed my distributor so I could replace the pip sensor (stalling when driving is the reason behind this). I reinstalled it and thought I liked everything back up and it’s turning, but not starting. I removed #1 spark plugs and and made sure the wires are correct per Haynes book. I can feel the compression with my finger, but still no start. Would this likely be caused from the drive gear teeth not being in the correct grooves or something else? I’ve read about hand cranking the engine so the rotor faces #1 cylinder terminal on the cap, but it already is pointing at it. I haven’t hand cranked the engine (I’m not sure how, honestly). Any suggestions where to go from here? Wires are correct, spark plugs are good, getting compression, all parts are good. I’m sure it’s something I’ve done incorrectly, but I don’t know what it is. Thank you in advance for your help
