Well you need spark. So make sure the cap & rotor are in good shape, and that the distributor is planted correctly. You know, bringing #1 to TDC on the compression stroke and plant the dizzy in with the rotor pointing at the #1 contact inside the distributor cap, not at #1 distributor cap tower? So if that is not the problem then all you have left is the Ignition Control Module or the crankshaft sensor to look at.
