Well.... I do not see the ignition module listed, which is mounted inside the distributor mentioned yet. Have you replaced it and just not listed it? The crank sensor could be too.....I just can't imagine having to cut a wiring harness. Never had to before... keep trying other things.

it looks like you changed all the ignition parts. so Yes you got fire......................but you don't have gas. or it would start. check for fuel again. somethings wrong. if you had gas, it would start. i dont think your getting fuel
1/ Have you fitted the spark plug leads in the proper firing order.
2/ Look inside the top of distributor Top (this is not the first time a new distributer cap has very small crack) or the rotor arm is fitting the cap properly. Hope this helps Best Wishes, Malcolm Campbell.
That old of a vehicle you might want to take the cap off and check to see if the shaft is turning. You will be able to see the rotor turning. Also look inside the cap and see if the rotor and cap are good inside.
You said you changed the ignition coil module, not sure if you mean you changed the coil too, if not change that.
If it is getting spark and fuel check the timing. The timing chain may have jumped.Take out #1 spark plug and tap engine till the compression stroke comes up. To check just hold your finger over the plug hole and the compression will blow it out. Then rock crank by hand and set to top dead center. Take distributer cap off and see if rotor faces #1 cylinder. If you have spark to the plugs and the plugs are good and you have fuel timing or compression is all that is left.
Normally on chevy ignition modules when they go bad, they will quit when they get hot & after cooling down will work again, so when you have them tested they have cooled down. I would try changing it & see if it wont fix it.
Check for spark and fuel. If you have spark make sure your fuel pump is working. If pump is working and no spark, check for spark off coil wire. If nothing there either, remove ignition module and take it to Napa and have them check it. Have them test it several times.
