Question 87 ranger cranks but won't start

87 ford ranger 2.3 litre 4 cylinder.
Went out this morning and replaced spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotor.
The engine is cranking, I'm getting sparks through the dist cap and the wires. The fuel pump is running and it's getting gas. My spark plugs are fine, i replaced those 2 weeks ago and they're all good.
I think maybe something electrical got knocked but I cannot find anything, anybody have any ideas?

does it start if you give it a little shot of starting fluid?

Still broken, I don't think it's fuel.
