If it cranks good, but, won't start, have a helper crank it, while you check for spark at the plugs. Use a known good spark plug or spark tester. Don't pull a spark plug from engine. Then, pull a spark plug wire, If the wire is hot, use a glove. Stick spark tester in spark plug wire boot, ground metal part of tester to metal part of engine, watch for spark, engine cranking.

If you have spark everywhere, use a gage and check fuel pressure. Be careful about gas spraying all over a hot engine, might start a fire.
