WD won't start

I recently moved my distributor and alternator from my 49 WD to a 53 WD that had the old 6 volt system on it. I aligned both motors to top dead center before making the switch. My 49 ran great but had transmission problems which is why I made the switch. I have power out of the coil, the starter spins and I get grey/blue smoke out the exhaust but won't start. Did I manage to get the distributor out of time during the switch or did I forget something?

Bring No1 piston near the radiator to TDC on the compression stroke. Both valves should be closed
on that cylinder when the piston is at TDC.

Look to see where your pointing. If its not at the No1 plug tower you need to pull it and rotate the rotor so it is at No1 and reinstall. Hal

Set the motor at top dead center,then check to see that the rotor is close to the # 1 post in the distributor,if it doesn't start rotate dist. 180 degrees!

You may have it out of time or you may have your plug wires on wrong. I would start by switching the wire 180 on the cap. I.E. take the wire from one side and move it across the coil wire to the other side of the cap. It may start for you it may not and back fire. If it back fires then you know you where close the first time.
