Disconnect a plug wire preferably no.1 cylinder-ground it to the engine and crank it over-do you have spark? If so Check the fuel pressure if its within specs-start here

No sparks means it could be a fault with the distributor, ignition coil, timing belt or missing power supply.

OK coil. Good. Changed fuel pimp relay fuel pump only comes on when wired direct blower relay was fried changed it. Distributed cap and rotor is worn could that be the problem even though car was not running bad before I turned it off and it never started again

If it starts now, yes, it is possible the bad distributor cap and rotor caused the problem. Sparks was weak resulting in excessive fuel getting to the cylinders causing them to be flooded and not fire up.

Sorry for the delay in replying.

If the fuel pump is not working even when wired direct, it means it is faulty.
As to no fire, I guess you mean no sparks. Have the distributor tested.
