MODELS CRANKS WON'T START

I have a 1978 Dodge 440 4bbl (carter)carb, Pace Arrow Motorhome, it got overheated very quickly due to a bad lower hose. With that fixed it has gas, oil, water, battery, and it cranks good but will not start. The coil was very hot an hour after the motor cooled totally down. It was running great until over heat and shut down. Any ideas will help. I'm changing the coil now as rest was just done.
Thank you

Are you sure it is getting enough gas? You might have to pump the pedal some to get it started. Does that help?
