Sounds like you are describing two different problems?... First, can you put a wrench on the crank bolt and turn the engine (2 complete turns...with trans out of gear of course)? ...if not this indicates an internal failure in the engine... if so check to see if the distributor has moved... that would explain the sluggishness and the backfire...The lost fasteners you mention should not affect driveability... When you say it will not turn over I am assuming you mean the starter won't engage... if you can hear the starter engaging (clicking), but the motor still won't turn (with a good charge on the battery and good wire connections), that is again a sign of serious engine damage... If no sounds come from the starter (and you have checked wiring and have good voltage) pull out the starter and test on the ground with jumper cables... Hope this helps... post more details if none of these steps get you going again...;-)
