This is testing my memory but I'm fairly certain that (if it's a 305 V-8) there is a FUSIBLE LINK (a piece of plastic imprinted with the words "FUSIBLE LINK" about 3' from the positive battery terminal on the firewall. Bypass or replace that, and you'll probably recover function of everything.
Also, your ignition relay may have fried. (It is located under your dashboard near the steering column on the driver side.)
my easiest way is to have someone listen at the gas tank when u turn ur key on. the fuel pump will not run everytime u turn ur key on but it should the first time u do. if u think u might have heard it then wait a min or so inbetween turning ur key back to the on possision. this way isnt as relighable as an ohm tester but this way u dont drop the tank to find out its good
Some problems with the ignition switches are pretty common with GM cars and trucks. With the key in the 'on' position, jiggle the key around and see if you get some erratic gauge operation or a shut-down.
Hopefully this should be a cheap solution to fix the problem. Your timing is a little off. You need to adjust your distributor. First start your car. Then loosen the bolt on the cap. slowly turn the cap until the engine evens out and it sounds proper. Tighten the bolt on the cap. Turn off the car and everything should be good from there. Hope this helps.
sounds like the fusable link which feeds power to the ignition switch has gone to the happy hunting ground. this fusable link is bolted to the starter motor battery terminal along with up to four others.
