Since you replaced the distributor, are you sure it's properly timed? Hook up timing light and try to crank. It should show you where your timing mark is. It will also verify that you are getting spark.
You need to start a systematic check. Is it electrical, mechanical, fuel related? Need to do more checking and maybe we can get that puppy going.

Yo man, i have the same bakkie more or less same problem.Lights came on as i was driving on the highway and it just died...pre ecnition...Starts then dies again...bla bla bla.List goes on!
Start by replacing the Petrol pump relay!!!+- R400 i think.
Its next to your right foot ,next to gas pedal.Behind that cover.A small black box!
don't buy it from a dealer!

the inner cover (the one on your side) goes off by pushing it upwards , then ull find 3 screws, 8 or 9 mm, take the off, unplug the electrical connection and the old mirror should come off fairly easy, replace, redo the invert process
hope this helps

SOURCE: fuel pump relay
first alway check the simple things first like fuses and relays then start playin with changin out parts. under the hood you sould find a fuse panel if the lid does not tell you what is what you need to look into the service manuel find the fuel pump relay and switch it with the same type relay can works some the doesn't effect the engine like a fan relay for expamle. then try to start engine when turning key to the run pos you sould hear a fant hum or whine from the pump. if thats a no go take the main fuel line off before the fuel filter and see if a good stream of fuel comes out when you turn key to run pos.if so replace fuel filter.

change fuel filler as normal then connect fuel feed from tank connect injectors leak off to fuel fillter leaving the rail flow pipe off this is the midddle one with the arrow pointing out
connect a piace of clear plastic pipe to this connection and slowly suck the fuel through the filtter and half way up pipe you can see this happen stop sucking the fuel will flow back to fillter take the pipe you were sucking through off and connect the feed to rail pipe turn on and crank engine she will start immediately
