You have spark and fuel. Remove the # 1 spark plug and remove the distributor cap, then spin engine and watch the position of the rotor when the # 1 cylinder bows compression. Do it a few times so you get a good idea of where the rotor is, Then compare it to the distributor cap # 1 wire position. If it is close, should be ok, if it is off, by a 1/4 turn timing has moved.

If timing looks ok, check the butterfly in the carburetor, the throttle shaft may have broken on it or the governor, Next would be to do a compression test.
