I replaced the intake gasket. Reinstalled everything and car wont start. Found that coil was firing but was not getting spark out of the plug wires. Replaced the ignition rotor and distrubitor cap, now getting spark out of plug wore but engine still will not turn over. Car tries to start but just wont fire up. Timing seems to be correct but not positive. Could the timing being out a few degrees cause the car not to crank at all. Any ideas? Any input would be very appreciated.

Timing a few degress off wont cause a no start, are all cylinders getting spark, and its not all erratic?

Dump gas in the throttle body, will that fire it up?

Getting spark off of all, dumped gas, did not work either. Wondering if there is a problem with fuel injection.

Gas should fire it up if your getting spark.

Try a compression test, that should tell us if the valves are working properly.
