Recheck all of your electrical connections while using the manual. In particular check your fuel injector connection and ensure it is fully seated. You should hear it click. Once you've check all the connections, check them again. Let us know what happens.

Can you do a compression check on that cylinder?

First off take a meter and see if your getting power to the rear cylinder. Check plug wire with meter to see if its good.
Check all electrical connectors.
Most auto stores rent compression gauges

Rear cylinder works. Front doesn't. He has spark so wire is good. My guess is issue is fuel related. So I agree with PhilC, check the injector connector.

Take the PCV out of the system and see what happens. If it does the same at least you know you its not the PCV. 30% failure rate on them things.

Take the plug wires off and turn it over. Then pull the plug and see if it has fuel on it. If it has fuel on it. hook the plug wire back up to the front plug and ground the threads to the head or cylinder to see if it is firing. Then trouble shoot based on witch one is the problem. If both are working you need to recheck the timing on the front cylinder.
