Check the dist as a lot of these earlier ones had reluctor problems and wouldn't start. So the dist had to be replaced. However this is just a guess because of the no start it would need to be physically looked at in order to properly diagnose it. Check the fusible links that run off of battery and alternator they should have 12 volts at both ends they my be just hanging on by a thread
