Can anyone tell me why my 1974 Corvette won't fire even after I've replaced the plugs and wires the condensor the rotor and distributor cap and the condensor?

On a 74 Corvette, there is a primary coil inside of the distributor that is usually the cause. I would assume that the engine turns over, but no fire. While you have the distributor apart, you might as well replace the secondary coil, located under the distributor plate too, because if this is the problem, you would have to tear the whole thing down again to fix it, and the parts do not cost that much.
