If you are getting fuel and spark at the cylinder then check the timing. It's not uncommon for worn timing chains to jump at shut off or start up. To check turn the engine over until the timingmarks on the crankshaft line up at 0. Trace the wire back from #1 piston, which is the front one on the passenger's side. On the cap it should be just to the right of the tab that locks the cap in the proper position on the distributor. Lift the cap and check the position of the rotor button. It should be directly under the tower for the wire or it should be 180 degrees off. If so turn the engine 1 turn until the timing marks line up at 0 again and look under the cap. If it's not lined up with the #1 wire, turn the distributor until it does. Tighten the distributor down and try the truck. If it fires you are looking at replacing the timing chain. If it jumped once it will jump again. Hope this helps.
