If there is pressurized fuel to the distributor and none to the cylinders, the distributor is suspect. K-jet is pretty basic. Maybe a salvage yard for your distributor.

As the message above points out, the fuel distributor is the likely culprit. These can be rebuilt - and they can be rebuilt as a DIY - but the job is not one I'd choose as an intro to mechanical work. Some of the components in there are very small and very delicate. Your best bet would be to buy a rebuilt.
