Well first off, if you know you dont have spark then replacing the main relay is pointless (being the fuel pump relay). I you replaced the distributor already, where did you get it from? I do not suggest aftermarket, they will fail in no time... Check if the ignitor is doing its job by putting a test light on the neg and pos terminals of the coil and crank it over. If the test light flashes, then the ignitor is sending the coil a signal but the coil is not working. If there is no flashing on the test light, then the ignitor is not working and cant tell the coil to fire spark. Its not easy to put the distributor in backwards (not to say its not possible, but you would know if you did) so what else is left, see if the timing belt is broken (which wouldnt spin the distributor, no spark) and also check to see if your plugs are on the distributor in the correct order.

Hope this helps...
-Phil

Ya i took a electrical tester and turned the key on and checked the coil and it gave me 12.6 volts out of the coil so i'm thinking it is the cap or maybe the rotor?
