If you have fuel and spark but it won't run do a compression test if all cylinders test low or zero it's jumped timing. If you have good compression, spark, and fuel check the ignition timing. HTH. -Jim

If you have spark at the coil, check spark at the sparkplugs if you don't, you may have a bad rotor ir dustributer cap
