    Definately sounds like you are not getting any spark. First check all you fuses. Then check the wiring for the ignition, coil, etc..... Also check the main 12v power to your distributor...

    If this doesn't help, let me know. i will be back on tomorrow morning!

    I would check the spark, pull a wire and place an old used plug in the wire and lay it on the engine where it will touch the ground then turn the motor over, if no spark then start checking all the ignition parts, but I would venture to say it would be the module that is inside the distributor. Most parts places like autozone have testers that can tell you if it is bad, along with your coil.

    My old q-jet carb would give me a very hard time during cold starts. It had a problem with the choke, especially if the engine wasn't started in several days. The only thing that helped was cranking it while pressing the gas pedal all the way to the floor.

    If it's flooded just hold the throttle wide open while cranking the extra air will clear it eventually. Also try starting fluid if it starts and runs with it then dies it's the carb or fuel. If that doesn't work check the spark if you have some the timing chain may have jumped (if it has alot of miles) and if it isn't that check to see if the rotor is turning inside the distrib (doubt it but check anyways)

    Wasn't me.............

    Try buying 8 new plugs first.
    I spent some time a while back checking all the hard stuff on my wife's 4 cyllinder. Turned out to be the easyest; 4 new plug's and started right upp.
    If you flood your engine sometimes the plugs will break when it tries to fire the amount off fuel that is in there.
