As I previously stated on 3-7 check your distributor to see if it hasn't jumped out of its drive connection.  You can have all the fuel and spark in the world  but if it doesn't happen at the correct time no car will start.  It happens without warning and you have all the spark in the world.  Pull the distributor and reseat it in its drive (not a pleasant task  but you need to be sure it's in time.  The more these distributors wear the more likely this will happen.  If you have a lot of movement in the distributor shaft in and out when it is out of the car  the spring in the oil pump  distributor drive will push the distributor shaft right out of its seat.  Also make sure the distributor seats tightly when you put it together.
