Check the positive side of the battery for a burnt fusible link. It looks like a wire but when it's over loaded if burns in half. Look at the pos. battery side of the starter solonoid you'll see a few of them there. Check your ignition module as well. This controls the coil and distributor and is mounted to the driver side inner fender.

possible solution is your door switch is faulty or grounding out. could also be the headlight switch. both of those parts you can get at almost any salvage yard

With truck off and key on, you should be able to hear the solenoid under the truck switch from one to the other tank, if you don't hear it, check for voltage at switch, if you have voltage there, have some one work the switch while your under the truck to check voltage there at the gas tank solenoid, also tap on it, while working the switch, could be stuck, if you have voltage, but don't switch, solenoid will have to be replace.

I would check the compression first. Without compression it won't fire. I should be at around 160psi per cylinder. If any are below or varies 10psi per cylinder, then the engine needs to be rebuilt.
