I am sorry for the long wait
so the engine will physically crank over no problem at all and you see the belt spinning as the engine fully is cranking over ?
but my concern is also that this truck died on you when driving it and it has not started since
if you unplug the coil out of the coil and crank it will it stop choking when cranking it over ?
coil wire out of the coil i ment
ok this is the first i am hearing about black smoke and a burning smell out the exhaust
does it stop doing this with the coil wire unplugged ?
I am thinking perhaps your timing chain jumped a tooth. If you haven't touched the distributor yet, you could check. First thing though you will have to line up the timing mark on the front crankshaft damper with zero top dead center. It don't matter right now, if it's intake or exhaust stroke for #1 cause either the rotor will be facing #1 on the cap or facing #4 if it was the exhaust stroke. If the rotor isn't facing either #1 or #4 on the cap and a little off, the timing chain may have jumped a tooth, you could confirm this with an engine compression test on a few cylinders.
