Ignition problem.Dont want 2 miss trails tomorrow.

Alright I need help quick.I am going on a "trail run" I guess tomorrow and havent been for a while.I bought some ignition waterproofer and a new distributer(mine had a crack in it and it the jeep didnt run very well).Well when I put the new distributer cap on and sprayed waterproofer all over the plugs and around and I think on the rotor..Well I cant get the jeep to start.Is this my problem?Am I going to have to buy a new rotor?At first I thought it was the firing order but I looked at my book and changed it a bit..I have a 258 I-6 1976 CJ-5.Im pretty sure the firing order is right but she wants to start but she doesnt.It will turn over then die.I dont think its the starter and the battery is new.After I got everything on (I think its right) the carb spit out some gas.Im really confused and want to be ready tomorrow morning PLEASE HELP!!

If knowledge=power and time=money.. please donate all your time and knowledge to my jeep!
