Firstly, change the gap on the spark plugs to the previous measurements. See if that's what upset it.

Check the for obvious aswell, damaged leads etc. Are the leads even fitted back in the correct order?

Use the one lead you have found that sparks. Try all 4 plugs on that lead to rule out the plugs being at fault. Seems unlikely that 3 plugs would fail at the same time but you never know.
