Analyse, analyse, analyse!

Presume it was previously working?    That you have new leads and electronic ignition points straight away to the most likely cause of malfunction - the last thing you did!    Correct orientation and order of plug leads?    Do you have a spark at the plugs?

and fitting a leccy unit you must recheck the timing , the guts are a straight swap but just what is where is often very different and timing can be miles out 

get no1 on its compression stroke , ( stick thimb over plug hole turn to get air pushed out  turn on the TDC look at where the rotor is pointing thats no 1 Ht lead followed anticlockwise
