Need to check and see if 12 Volts is coming threw the small wire that activates the solenoid when you turn the key to start. May be a starter relay, or the ignition switch not adjusted just right.

Wires hooked to distributor?

theres a rod on top of the steering colem that breaks so it can't push enough to activate the starter to crank over
