If your distributor isn't turning, but the other stuff like your fan and generator/alternator, etc. are, something's wrong in the gearing which drives the distributor, or the distributor shaft is broken. You're probably going to have to pull the distributor off, at a minimum, to see what the problem is.

How long are the bolts that hold the condenser and points and did you use the same ones that came out. I lost the one in the condenser on my H one time and the one I put in was long enough it hit something inside the distributor and sheared a tiny pin. The correct bolts are very short - I'm not sure they are even a quarter inch long.
