If the timing isn't computer controlled, or at least is adjustable at the distributor, I'd say that would be your starting point. But I'm assuming you didn't mess with that when you replaced your clutch. I can't think of anything that would affect your engine runnning or not when replacing a clutch unless you pulled the motor to change the clutch.
