First check for fuel and spark. Check the distributor cap to see if the rotor is damaged or not.

Spray some starting fluid down the carburetor. It should run on that for a few seconds. If so, it's a fuel problem. If not, it's an ignition (no spark) problem or it's jumped timing. If you have spark and it still won't run on the starting fluid run a compression test. If all cylinders test very low OE zero, it's jumped timing. HTH. -Jim
