Sorry about that. All of my electronics are working but I won't get spark to the plugs, checked the distributor cap and distributor, checked every vacuum line and the MAP, when I turn the key she turns but doesn't start.

I would start with a new set of plugs and wires and make sure you gap them all the the right length. I would also check your cps.

Locate CPS check for broken wiring melted plug ,this is the most common part that causes no start issue follow Cruiser54 tips on testing procedures .

How do you know all the electronics are working? How did you test them?

Exactly what test procedures have you performed, and what were the results?
