Have a helper crank it, while you visually check for spark at the plugs. If you have spark everywhere, use a gage and check fuel pressure.
To check for spark at the plugs, you can pull a plug wire, stick known good plug or spark tester in the plug boot, ground metal part of plug/tester to metal part of engine, watch for spark. Also, some of the national brand autostores used to loan out a fuel pressure gage, if you don't have one.
