Can you hear the fuel pump when you switch to on? I don't know what else you've looked at but check out the starter relay and the ignition barrel. Did you undo the main engine harness behind the intake manifold at all? ensure the 10mm bolt is tight there.

maybe your dizzy might be rooted.is it getting fuel in to the engine? pull out a spark plug and test it see if it works.or take of number one plug stick your finger in the plug and get some one to crank the car over

diagnosing cars on a forum is not easy....we have no idea what u have tried or how u have tried it...or your skill level...

you say car wont start....do u mean it cranks but dont fire? or it dont crank at all...
