CHEVY ENGINE WON'T SPARK

1979 Chevrolet Nova

Engine Mechanical problem
1979 Chevy Nova V8 Wheel Drive Type unknown Automatic? Miles

My husband is restoring a 1979 Nova and now the engine will try to start, but won't crank over he replaced the Ignition coil and cap and rotor but says there is still no spark when he looks at the spark plugs. What could be causing this? He has tried everything he knows and cannot figure it out. He says it is getting fuel and is not flooded.

When my Chevy did that it was the camshaft drive that was busted.

Was it the camshaft drive? The only reason I ask is cause my engine sounds weak when tryin to start it, tried a new battery and still sounds the same, sometimes I get a spark from the spark plugs and sometimes I don't, have tried everything possible but no luck yet, please let me know if you found the solution, thanks!
