Default All new parts, still wont start

Ok
I need some serious help here. Im about to go nuts.
Replaced the distributor and the ECM in my 1985 D150.
I have spark at the coil and plug wires.
Still no joy.
I have traced wires and cleaned up everything I could to no avail.
The previous owners have hacked the wiring to hell.
Please help!!!!

Got him to start.
Timing was 180 out.
However now he wants to cut off at half throttle.
No problems at all when the accelerator is to the floor.
