Welcome, if it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it, while you check for spark at the plugs. If you have spark everywhere, use a gage and check fuel pressure. To check for spark, you can pull off a plug boot, stick a known good plug in the boot, ground metal part of plug against metal part of engine. Have helper crank it, while watch for spark the tip of plug.
