[T3] she still won't start!!! ????

just want to say thanks for all your help so far....

now here's where i'm at.  i've been spending every waking hour after work 
until dark trying to figure this out...i'm not a mechanical genius so it's 
tough.  anyway...i checked out the fuel pump, it seems to be working fine, 
turns on when key is on, there's fuel in the gas line coming out of the pump 
and also after the dampner...it seems as though the gas is making it through 
the system, there's gas in the line after the regulator (which means it's on 
its way back right??).
i haven't checked my injectors yet.  i did pull my distributor to check the 
trigger contacts (i remembered when i bought the car the guy told me it 
needs "new points", but they were "inside the engine??".  i guess he was 
refering to the trigger contacts).  they were were pretty crudded up, but 
luckily i had a decent set from a distributor from another engine i have.  
so i put them in, and nothing.  another thing, my distributor seems to be 
not in right, although the rotor turns and everything......i set #1 tdc and 
put it in but its not flush with the top of the mount, there's a little 
clearance there.  could this be a problem??  this is all very 
frustrating....i may give up soon.........
