Check the wire on the distributor that is marked "BATT" for 12 volts with the key on...If it is missing back track the wire for a burned line or blown fuse...

To test, just run a jumper from the Battery to the "BATT" wire on the distributor, If it runs, then it's along that wire...

If it won't Start, then look at the Coil, Have the ECM tested at the parts store, or Magnetic pickup, any of these will stop spark.
