Unplug the distributor. Turn the key to the II position. Use a volt meter and see if the blk/yel wire going to the distributor has 12V. Use the red volt meter lead on the blk/yel wire. The black volt meter lead should be on a good ground like a valve cover bolt.
i dont have a volt meter but i unplug the dist. and used a test light and turned switch on and test light came on also to the coil. how to check to see if fuel pump is getting power and how would that cause it not to have fire? t-belt is still there and is all turning when it is spinning over

When you turn keyswitch to On, you should hear a soft click from under dash on driver's side. This is main fuel relay (MFR) which supplies power to the fuel pump. If you don't hear the click, the MFR may be bad. You have to listen in quiet conditions, but it can be easily head if it's working.
You should be getting fire w/ a new distributor, power to the distributor, and distributor rotation. Was distributor a rebuilt, used, or new? As suggested by PA, check the distributor ground on the thermostat housing, as this can cause no start if loose or corroded.
How are you checking for spark? Do you have an inductive pickup timing light? If yes, try attaching lead to any spark plug and turning engine over. If no flash, then no spark, or if flashing, then spark is good.
I've had some luck w/ getting a stuck fuel pump to run a bit, by "hammering' w/ the keyswitch on/off/on... After a while it would catch (buzz from fuel tank). However one not started for 2 yrs may never catch. Check power to the Yellow wire at connector in trunk. This is a 2-man job since power only stays on 2-3 secs after switch is turned to On.

I borrowed a volt meter and unplug the dist.and Im getting 12 volts but still no spark to plugs I check the ground wire at thermostat housing and cleaned it also. as far as the fuel pump check the access panel in the trunk is for the fuel sending unit and i cant find a yel/blk wire and could that cause it not to be firing?
