It’s really hard to say what could be wrong but start with the simple stuff, how’s the car battery? Try a full charge if you’ve been cranking the engine over lots. Check for a good spark. What do the spark plugs look like after cranking, are the smelling of fuel?
How are the dissy cap, rotor arm, HT leads and spark plugs, are they new?
