Should check from the source of the spark, the coil. But any way a possibility is that the pin on the distributor gear may have sheard holding the geare in place on the distributor shaft. Just take the cap off and try twisting the rotor, see if it will move.

Will do but what would make it not trun over by the key a

Bad solenoid, no power going threw the small wire to the solenoid meaning possible bad ignition switch or neutral safety switch, or even the starter relay.

Ok Ima try these things
