    allright heres the deal.. guy got his car towed into the shop i work at.. couldnt afford to fix it.. sold it to me fairly cheap. 93 civic LX. at first thought it had a broken timing belt.. turns out the cam was seized in the head. took the head off.. got another out of a yard (yes it was pressure checked and milled) and put it in. new honda O.E. head bolts, new head/intake/exhaust gaskets. the car came with new distributor, and tbelt and water pump were brand new as well. double, triple, quadrupel checked the timing.. its in. car cranks... feels like it wants to catch... then doesnt. ive got spark, got fuel... not firing up. im getting a compression tester tomorrow from work.. but i really dont see that being the problem. check engine light is not on. Fuses are all ok, pretty sure i have all the grounds hooked up.

    makes no sense, do the compression check I guess and see what the deal is, but I would say if the head came off a running car, there shouldn't be any problems.

    you mentioned grounds, I assume you didn't remove the engine to change the head, but even if you did there are 2 ground straps 1 on the tranny right near the clutch slave cylinder hose bracket the other one is on the valve cover
    there is also a ground on the thermostat housing for the engine harness
