Farmall cub won't start

I've got a farmall cub that has the engine overhauled. I have installed new plugs, condenser, rotor, points, cap and wires. I used champion D15Y(these have been used in IHC tractors foreber).The cub has a mag which has been checked and throws a good blue spark. I have tried D21 plugs and ac C-88 and the cub won't start. The plugs will fire outside the engine if grounded, but won't fire when installed in the engine. This was checked using a timing light. Does anyone have any ideas? I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure this one out and am about out of hair.

Silly question probably, but are you getting fuel? All old Inters seem to start right up if you give them fuel and spark. Have you bombed it with a bit of fuel in the plug holes? Regards, Redfan.

Are you sure the plugs are firing at the correct time?

Yes the mag will fire at TDC and the firing order is correct on the mag and on the engine

I finally got the cub started. Like I said the plugs were not firing in the engine. I changed the plug gap to .010 and narrowed the point gap to .010 and it started. Evidently I had low voltage so much so that the spark could not jump the gap.
