Hello stealhorsemustang-- No matter what people tell me about distributos and fuel pumps, etc., the most likely source of your trouble is the battery. Often there is enough power left in it to turn over, but not enough to start the engine. Get a jump start and see if the car starts then. If it does, the battery is your problem. Good luck from Bovan.
