There's so many things that can cause this problem. First, check if the fuel pump is working. You can do this by turning the ignition in on position and listen if you hear a humming sound by the gas tank.(or thru the gas tank spout.) If it's working, check the plugs if there's spark. Remove plug No. 1, connect it back to the wire, ground it and let someone crank the engine. If you don't see a spark, you might have a bad distributor...It could be the cover, rotor, coil or the igniter.....You have two options, it either try to repair the old one or get a new or rebuilt distributor.......Before you get a new dist, check the old coil for its continuity, if it's ok that means its the igniter....It will be cheaper for you to repair than to replace it with a new one.............Hope this will help you.....
