I also have a 4.3 V 6 . This is what I would do. Spray some starting fluid down the throttle body and see if it fires. By doing this it should do something. If nothing pull the distributor cap and crank it over make sure rotor turns. Might have broke timing chain or the roll pin on the bottom of the distributor drive shaft might have sheared. The contact in the ignition switch might have failed that connects the battery to the ignition system when cranking. I had mine quit. Ran fine one time next time went to start ,nothing till I replaced it. Hope this helps.
