XJ will not start, Help

93 XJ, I recently purchased this. The previous owner had pulled the motor out and thought the bearing in the lower end was bad. It was only the flywheel. They reinstalled it. It will not fire. Does have fuel. Changed the crank senor (under the rotor in the distrib), crank position senor on the trans housing. Cranks over fine but does not fire. Owner said dist. was not pulled when motor removed. Help!!

The fuel pressure is good. There is not spark, from the coil,or distrib.
It does have the correct flywheel.
The plugs are wet. The ADS relay clicks fast, when key is on before you start it.
I figured it out. They had 3 wires connected to the firewall and they should of been grounded to the block. Changed the location and it started right up.
