If your sure you've got fuel than make sure you have a good hot spark and that it is happening at the right time. If you take your car to a mechanic he is going to charge you for finding this out. Was the distibutor out and put in 180 deg. off? Plug wires crossed. Distributor loose did it turn? If your sure you've got a good spark than turn the distributor while your cranking over to see what happens? Is your distributor turning when you crank it? Pull the cap and bump the motor---Good luck and keep posting

I'm with toanderson. Double check to see if your spark is going off at TDC in the compression stroke. Your distributor may be 180 degrees off.

Unfortunetly after days of tinkering I needed the car back and I am not very knowledgable of car stuff so I took it to the mechanic and he said the distributor was out of line with the engine and that it could only be this way if I removed the distributor (I didn't) or the timing chain jumped, which I am assuming the latter happened. Anyway, I just wanted to thank you all for your help. It is really appreciated. Thanks again.
