    What have you looked at so far? You might want to replace the points and condensor if you haven't already.

    Some of the front pulleys/dampers have more than one mark on them. Make sure you use the right one for timing. Pulley mark on the timeing center and then #1 postion on the distributor cap as well and she should fire. Set timing after you get her running.
