#1 is your fuel pump running? can you here it when you turn the key on,should run for a few seconds.i just went through the same problem with mine a few months back and i ended up spending almost $200.00 in it but it's running great..turned out to be the pickup coil in the distributor.now let me tell you it is a hell of a job with out a hoist as it is at the back of the engine..i got it done but i pulled it right out to work on it..good luck..
