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!!

I changed the flex plate on my wife's 2000 xj and having the same problems. You find anything out post it up. For me everything is checking out , fuel pressure is at specs. It ran after I put everthing together and slowly shut down as it was running to the point where it's a crank no start.
well check to see if you have power to the coil first . The power will have to come from the coil first before the dist.
should of asked this sooner , are you sure they installed the right flexplate (flywheel) ?? The crank position sensor reads off the flexplate, which in return controls your spark to fire the engine. I would check the persons work you got it from first.
you know what happens when one assumes. It's worth checking out seeing you didn't do the work.
