You may want to remove spark plug to make sure you are getting a decent spark .a nice strong blue and usualy easily visible and not weak yellow spark thats hard to see .if you have a spare spark plug no need to remove one from engine.Make sure you have a good 12v source of power to the distributor.Is your distributor electronic?should be but if points based instead you may find its time to change the points.Also your coil needs to be checked by removing the H/t lead to the distributor and checking that the coil is producing a healthy spark.Coil and spark plug test is done while some one turns engine over while other person watches. while testing do not touch while cranking as you will get severe electric shock if you do .If coil produces poor spark check you have 12v into the positive terminal while cranking if that is the case the coil needs replacing unless the points are no good,if fitted and not electronic.Let me know how you go and if you have no luck starting glad to go further with help and advice
