9 times out of 10 its a spark problem. Work backwards. Pull a spark plug boot and check for spark. If none, pull coil wire and check for spark coming out of coil. If none, check for power to coil. If there is power to the coil then it could be the coil or in the distributor. Let us know what you find and what type of system you have and we can work through it.
