For A 1986 Chevy Celebrity. I Just Replaced The Distributor Cap And Rotor. When I Start It Doesn’t Catch. Why

Engine runs fine once it’s up to speed. Doesn’t like to start as the timing seems off and isn’t firing correctly. I replaced the cap and rotor and now am wondering why I’m still having this problem. The cap moves a little but I was told this is normal. It is also running a little rough until the engine is hot. Spark plugs and wires are new too. Oil was just changed. Added Lucas transmission lube. Is there anything I can look at to diagnose before I take it to the shop?

Made sure the wires were on the same way they were when I took them off. Haven’t tried a timing light yet. How do I fix the timing chain if it’s off?
