If you have spark and fuel but it still won't run, chech the ignition timing while cranking using a timing light. If the ignition timing is off, loosen the distributor hold down but and try slowly turning the distributor both ways (clockwise and counter clockwise) to see if it'll start. If everything is good there, run a compression test. If all cylinders test low or zero the timing chain has jumped. HTH. -Jim
