Default Fire repairs

Got my engine (351w) nearly ready to start, and while ticking over the engine to find tdc a fire broke out, starting down near the catalytic converter (passenger side). Got it put out, but need to replace the fuel injector connectors on the passenger side of the engine. Can i buy new ones and just splice them into the wiring harness? Any tips on best splicing techniques, I was gonna twist wires and shrink tube them. Also rebuilt my injectors and the fire was caused by a leak at the top, between the fuel rail and the injector. Juat put new o rings on. Do I need to replace them again? Thanks

Fire was minimal and quickly extinguished. Got new o rings and installed. Still have one leaker. O rings seem to be deforming upon installation. Used a little lite oil to install. Any ideas?

Thanks glc. Got the wiring harness all finished. Didn't solder but I taped it up real good.

Default Replaced block but engine wont start

Okay, I got the problem with the fuel injectors worked out. FYI using a little liquid dishwashing soap on the o rings solved the problem of them deforming when pushed into fuel rail.
Now the problem is, after getting everything hooked up the engine turns over but doesn't seem to be getting any spark. Replaced the battery, spark plugs, plug wires, alternator, distributor cap, and rotor during the build. Used dielectric grease inside the plug wires. Found tdc and dropped the distributor in to line up the rotor with #1 cylinder.
Any ideas what I need to do to get my truck running.

This may sound stupid, but have you checked to make sure you have the plug wires in the correct order on the cap and to the corresponding cylinder?

I had an issue with a crappy running engine in my stRanger after I replaced the plugs and wires. Turns out, my mechanic crossed 2 wires from the pack....

with NO spark, did you check this with a wire or with a plug out ? ohm the wire and try another plug
even if the dist is in wrong the plug will/should spark
if no spark check wiring to the distributor
maybe change out the coil with another
then it might be an internal distributor issue, did you do anything in there ?

on electrical items, just because they are new doesn't mean they are good
