Hello and thank you for your question,

Are you saying you are not getting any spark to the spark plugs while cranking the engine over?

Dose the engine have good compression?

One common cause for the lack of spark providing the distributor is turning can be caused by a failed distributor, are you able to do some testing if I send you the steps?

Okay then let start with checking the distributor since you are not getting spark, start first with making sure it turns while cranking the engine over and if so, run the test steps in the link below, copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view them.

Okay then run the test steps I sent you and that should verify if in fact your distributor has failed. Please take a moment to rate my service so I can get credit for my time, the question remains open for follow up even after doing so, all you need to do is return to this question if need be and we can work from there.
