Need timing help!!!

So I adjusted my roller rockers and put everything back together and the only thing left was to put it in time. I do what I usually do when I put it in time. Put a finger in Number 1 spark plug hole till air pushes it out then bring your balancer to 0 degrees TDC put the distributor in and line up rotor with #1 spark plug wire then take out the spout connecter and Fire it up then put it in time.... But it won't fire up. It ran for a second once or twice but what am I doing wrong?

Check to see which motor you have. Ford has two 5.0's and each has a different firing order. The motors that came stock in early mustang's are High Output roller motors and then they have the Windsor.

It's an 89 5.0. When I built the motor this is how I timed it but it's not working now

Well, make sure you are at the top of the compression stroke, not the exhaust stroke. If you didn't have a valve cover off and weren't watching the rockers to make sure the intake rocker moves prior to the piston coming up you could have set #1 on the exhaust stroke. It pushes air out of the cylinder on the exhaust stroke too which is why you should visually look at the rockers.

I always put my finger in the spark plug hole then When It starts to push it out I bring it to 0' TDC on the balancer
