Dear rooster-- I could list a couple of dozen reasons why your truck is letting you down. To narrow it further, I would need some more symptoms. It could be as simple as a weak battery or as complex as a bad belt, a faulty starter or a useless ignition control monitor. From my post on the distant edge of cyberspace I can't make a further diagnosis without hearing more symptoms. Wouldn't you agree with the doctor? Good luck from Bovan.

if you have current going to your plugs it means your engine is turning over, look over your firing order and timming, check to see if they are right.

you might check your inertia switch. i just had this problem. i had spark and and it would turn over but i wasn't getting gas. its above your wiring harness to the left hand side if you push the button and it goes down and stays down then it should start.
