Default Samurai Plug wire problem

ok so I got another samurai the other day and changed the plugs and wires and didn't think anything about it and pulled the plugs and wires then went to get some from the store, I know my stuff and even if I screwed up I can look up the plug wire order in the service manual so I plugged in all the wires but it wont run in the stock wire hook up (1234) but I switched the wires around (1432)or something like that and even with the wires all mixed up it still wont run right. I do believe the previous owner was an idiot, he also hooked up the coil backwards which I fixed. It was running but not great when I got it(which is why I changed the plugs and wires).
does anyone have any ideas or know whats wrong. the only thing I can think of is maybe the timing is off
I know my stuff but this is weird, Ive never seen a car that the wiring order doesn't match the service manual

Firing order should be 1342 clockwise on an 8v. With both timming marks pointing to their marks "up" Distributor should be pointing at #4 cylinder.

also, don't assume that the markings on the distributor cap indicate the correct firing position. On my cap, the marks are all off by one, so the one marked with number one is actually number 2... make sure you are look at which contact the rotor is pointing at when at TDC to tell you the correct position for number 1 (or 4) keep in mind the timing mark on the Crank shaft pulley comes around twice for every revolution of the Distributor, so the mark will be at TDC when the distributor rotor is pointing at plug 1 and again when it's pointing at plug 4. If you open the timing belt cover on the front of the engine, The timing marks on the camshaft sprocket will only point up when the #4 cylinder is in the firing position. If you don't feel like pulling the front timing belt cover off, then you can try trial and error. If it doesn't fire with it set up one way, rotate your wires 2 positions and try it that way. DON'T keep cranking it if it's not firing and you don't know if your plugs are on correctly. You end up with a bunch of hot gasses in your crank case and when you open any crank case vent to the atmosphere... heat+fuel+oxygen=BOOM.
