Was the car running when you bought it? IF not , forget about the timing belt being 'nice and tight' and make sure it's lined up properly!! From what I've been able to find , the distributor should only go in one way. If the timing belt was not properly lined up then that could be the cause of the rotor not being where it should be(should still get spark though). Did the timing belt break , and that's why it was replaced? IF so , then check that it's installed properly first and then do a compression test and make sure you don't have bent valves.----it's listed as an 'interference engine'.
