you set the base time , now you need to set the static timing.(ignition time) perhaps in the process you disconected a spark plug wire and re attached it in the wrong spot. or when you set the base timing you put the #1 piston on a exhaust stroke rather than the compression stroke. if it was put in exhaust stroke the car is never going to fire up. there could also be other reasons. bad plugs,bad ignition module,bad coil. loose plug wires,bad distributor cap.ect.

Where would I look for timing marks on a 1989 Ford Escort 1.9 How would I set the timing marks?

If memory serves me correctly, the timing marks will be behind the timing belt cover. There will be marks on the gears and also marks on the block. Line the top gear with the top mark and the bottom gear with the bottom mark. Please note that you will need to undo the battery for a few minutes and then reconnect. This allows the computer to reset itself. Hope this helps
