Timing problems need help

I have a 1989 5.0 convertible and i swapped out a 2.3 to the 5.0 had it running good but motor went out so i got a motor out of a 1996 explorer 5.0 and that has the coil packs cam sensor and crank sersor so i took that off and change it back to distributor also changed the harmonic balancer to the one i had on my first engine i wanted to know if the timing marks would line up with the engine like TDC i used this http://sbftech.com/index.php?PHPSESS...d&topic=7114.0 to help me out the but still didnt run right im looking at other things to like sensors also is there a safe way to test plugs there real black i used them to for first start up so mite have got fouled

I always just throw the plug on a grounded bolt and spin the motor over.

Make sure you followed all the steps on that procedure. You need to be on the right stroke (compression) and you your wires must be on the dizzy in the proper firing order (ho) on the dizzy in a counter clockwise pattern. One little slip on any of these I mentioned and it won't run right.

Will it start if it sits for a while? Im guessing the itming is still of and its flooding when you try to start it.
