Well if you have fat white spark and you are sure it's getting fuel then it's got to be either timing (valve or ignition or both) or compression although even with low compression you should get some signs of life.
Have you done a compression test? If you get absolutely no compression it could be the valve timing although if it was running when it was parked then nothing should have changed there.........IF it was running.........IF......I've learned that you can't always trust what people say. I much prefer to do my own detective work if you know what I mean.
Check, check and check the timing again, a carelessly placed distributor could cause you a lot of grief.
Oh, and here's something that caught me one time. When looking at the firing order (1,3,4,2) remember that the distributor turns counter clockwise.
