Check fuel pressure with a mechanical gauge, should be 13psi. If no fuel, apply 12V to terminal "G" of ALDL
(you can use cigarette lighter wires as a 12V source). If pump does not run, pump or wiring is bad.
Check spark using a spark checking tool that you connect the wire to and adjust gap on tool and ground to valve cover bolt. If no spark, have ignition module tested.

Inspect all hoses and waterpump "weep hole" for leaks.
