By any chance did you take all the spark plug wires off at the same time? Are you sure that you have the firing order correct? Did you get the plug wire connectors seated on the top of the spark plugs securely? You should feel a 'click' when removing the wires. Did you seat the plug wires in the distributor completely? If there is a gap, it can cause the cylinder to miss.
