Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

Fist be sure that the dwell/points are not closed up. Also check to see that the timing is correct. Be sure you have a good strong blue spark at the plugs.

If these are all good, then check engine compression with a gauge.

Please understand that I don't know your skill level or tools
you have to assist us. Also understand that I can't see, smell,
hear, or touch the vehicle either, so your patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does not replace a
repair shop. So please don’t shoot the messenger if I have to
deliver bad news:)
If you are satisfied with my answer, I would greatly
appreciate a 5 star rating now before you leave the site and I
will still assist you after you have rated me too if another
question pops up. I don’t get credit for helping you until
you rate me

Thanks, Ron
