Crank no start

Hi, im still working on my 93 lima 2.3l
ive done a headgasket plugs+wires and wiring harness.
first few days it wouldn't turn over or crank....i let it sit another 3 days and she fires right up....few more days pass and now it wont start, its cranking like it wants to start but no luck....could there be something wrong with the ignition.
i swapped wiring harness because my buddy says he seen a spark go off when i tried starting it the first time after i replaced the head gasket could i have cooked something? Thanks!

Any time you have a crank but no start do the 50/50 test

Spray fuel into the engine and try to start it
If it starts and dies Spark is OK, you have a fuel delivery issue
If it doesn't start then look at the spark system
50/50 fast and easy
