Take of the air filter lid look down the throat of the carb and have someone push the gas pedal to the floor,watch for a spray of fuel down the throat, if it sprays then you have fuel, put the lid back on, next step is check for spark, remove the coil wire from the distributor and lay it close to the block, have someone crank the engine and watch for a spark from the wire, if no spark then you need to check for a trigger signal and power to the coil.
