1 Answer


Fuel pump is the first thing that comes to mind, your just about right on the year for this too happen. But really you need to find out if it is fuel or spark related, grab a can of spray starter fluid and spray some in the intake while someone cranks it over, if it fires and runs briefly then it is fuel related, if it doesn't then it is spark.
