I'd double check timing, and I've mentioned this before, make sure you have the cams in the correct place. The exhaust cam is furthest forward in the engine, and it has a notch on then end where in past designs drove the distributor. My machinist swapped these once on me and we wasted a bunch of time trying to figure it out after a rebuild.

Check for fuel, do the plugs seen wet? If you can't hear the pump I'd pull a plug and look. You can also check for spark by setting the di up with plugs in and grounded with a wire.
Funny someone said the exact same thing on the other forum. I was pretty sure i had put them in correctly, then you reminded me of that notch and now I am 100% sure I did correctly, I remember the notch being on the forward cam.
