sha4000, you are correct, the engine is turning but will not start. I did not hear any spark. No codes were read. I show the picture above because I was not sure (at the time) if I installed them correctly.
I later found out that the instruction on Lexls was incorrect. The contact points (wire) should be at the yellow arrows (not at the opposite position as shown in the picture below). After fixing the errors, my car is running normal now. If I had taken pictures of the distributor rotors when taking them off, I would not have any issue. The positive outcome from this is I feel more confident with timing belt work since it is more straight forward.
Thank you for getting back to me.
Listing can be found on Ebay.

Could it be the coils? I had the exact same issue with my 2001 Lexus RX 300 and an old 1995 Isuzu Trooper, the coils were replaced and that fixed the issue. Both times I bought used coils from a wrecking yard. I just made sure the coils were from lower mileage cars.
This happened to our RX 300. Only a couple of the coils were misfiring. We replaced with cheap coil's and several of those coil's started to misfire so I bought some used OE coil's off of ebay and those lasted for years. The coil's had the Denso name on them. This RX died at 274,000 miles of tranny failure.
We bought another RX with 125,000 miles on it and I may try the Accel coil's, they are the same price as the Denso. Of course, I could go to the Lexus dealership and pay $200 per coil's....hahahahahahahahah
Our RX 300 would cut all gas pumps off after a very little gas went into the tank. It would take 20 minutes to fill the tank. We never fixed it and the car died after 274,000 great miles. Never found out the cause either....
