no start


hi guys i hope someone can help!
i have a 98 2500 4x4 quad cab. 360 gas motor. ran good except for oil consumption and bad mileage!
i too suffered from occassional oil pressure lost!
anyhow, i changed the manifold & plenum gaskets. did it all myself!
easy xcept for 1 broken bolt. put it all back 2gether.
then it wouldnt start, no spark or fuel pump !
then i noticed the smashed cam sensor wire, replaced the sensor!
looked eveywere else cleaned up grounds, connectors etc.
i tried to start it, got spark, fuel pump worx!
still wont fire up! just cranks!
no codes, or blown fuses! swapped relays too
seen spark at coil, and different plug wires!
please help driving me nuts!

are you sure you have the distributor in right? Try some starter fluid down the throttle body to see if it fires, that may help to narrow it down.

actually i have spark like it says, i noticed the smashed wire, that fixed the no spark, fuel pump problem. and no i didnt remove or touch the distributor, didnt need to.
i now have spark @ the plugs and the coil. fuel pump work i actually smell gas.
it just cranks constantly, has fuel and spark!
cant see anymore smashed wires etc. i cleaned all the grounds i could find!
no bad fuses, swapped relays.
i did install a new cam sensor, installed right.
checked plugs 2day, looked tan.
i will check the fuel pressure tommorow, & even combustion
i will even check vacuum around the manifold
this is irritating, i even killed my battery!
no codes either, i will try to do a test on my injectors!
i even reset my crank sensor, by unplugging it and cranking it a few times
it worked on my jeep 4.0.
please help this is driving me nuts!
