Car turns over great so the starter is good right?

It cranks and cranks but wont start. If we push start it it starts and runs flawlessly.

Possible causes?

Changed the ecu and no change.
Changed the distributor no change.

Ignition switch or relay? If the ignition is bad will the car still crank and try to start or will it not turn over at all?

Any ideas please and thank you.

It's been like this for almost 2 months now :(

Probably a bad battery or bad grounding somewhere with the battery. That's usually the first on any manual car if I could "push start" it, but not start it on "stand still."

yea but the battery is putting out good voltage and it turns over strong..

any knowledge on the ignition switch or relay?
