Replaced coil, wires, cap + button... still no start Coil is getting power, Fuel pump works.. Engine is turning over( I can see alternator belt spinning ), but it sounds like its skipping a beat[?] if that makes sense?, Like a doo-doo-doo-doo-duh-doo-doo-doo-doo-duhh... Please help! Bought new main relay didn't change a thing. I have a new distributor coming sunday, maybe thats the problem? Had red dust in my old one, but just a little bit of it.

Pull the distributor cap and make sure the rotor is actually attached. Some times the set screw loosens and you got squat.

Did you check all your grounds?? PARTICULARLY YOUR MOTOR TO FRAME GROUNDS? Are all ur plug wires hooked up correctly? I've had a few mixed up before and it took me days to figure out it was something as lame as that. I would double check'em
