check your grounds. Should be one on the valve cover, one on the thermostat housing and one big fat one on the tranny going to the frame, and of course from the battery to the body of the car. Also make sure the ground on the starter is hooked up.

yeah i've had the car get no power because 1 ground wasn't hooked up. But it wasn't the valve cover ground. You might want to try sanding down the metal where the grounds attach (thermostat housing, tranny, frame, etc).

if your starter was smoking i would assume its prolly toast. But i don't see why that would cause your car to not get any power at all. Unless it fried some wires.

the frame ground was damaged so i gotta fix
its turning over but it wont catch i know im low on fuel cuz i ran it low .

the fuel injectors wires were pulled from the plastic contector's if put them back but i dont know if i cross them the wrong way would that cause it not to turn over which im assuming so ?? which is the best way to find out the proper way to make sure they are in the right place ?? if you dont know what im talkin about the connector wires there all hooked up though just no go

So you don't have clips on your injectors?
well the red/black wire should always go on the left side (standing in front of the engine facing the firewall)
These colors are for the right side of the injector
#1 brown
#2 red
#3 grey (possible blue i am colour blind)
#4 yellow
hope this helps.

could be the cam seal or dizzy o-ring. Did you recently change the headgasket and maybe put it on backwards?

Its the rubber o-ring on the shaft of the distributor. If there was no o-ring there it would probably **** oil everywhere.
The cam seal is a very common source of an oil leak on b-series engines, although it may not look like its leaking from there.
It could also be the vtec solenoid to cylinder head seal.
This b16 swap has been nothing but problems for you. Hope you get things going good soon.
