To be more precise,would really need to know the model of engine;4G64,6A11,6A12 etc.should be on vehicle ID badge.the 4 denotes a 4 cylinder,6 is V6,the earlier models have an external coil,or coil pack,the later models have the coil either inside the distributor under the cap.if external coil,remove the coil HT lead that runs to the cap from the cap,place near an area that is earthed and crank engine,should see a spark jump to the metal object.
Both early and later models run modules inside distributors.these often fail.Either can replace them or just get a second hand dizzy complete
Also crank engine with cap off and ensure that rotor is turning.I assume that this one fits into the end of cam at one end of the head,so this should not be a problem,but still check.the more that we find that is ok,the closer we get to what isnt.
hope this helps or get back with some more info and will endeavour to pinpoint problem.

If it rains or is wet out engine turns over but wont fire like its gettin no sparke but if its dry out it fires right up with no problems


Check the cap and rotor. When it's dry out start it at night in a dark spot. If there's a crack in the cap you should see a spark jump. Or the seal on the base is bad. That's a problem I've run into repeatedly with the 4.3 vortec motors. Moisture conducts electricity so the spark is dissipated inside the cap and doesn't know where to go.

1984 volkswagen crank no start getting fuel and spark


You must have the plug leads in the wrong place on the distributor.
Firing order is 1-3-4-2
Remove the distributor cap. There is a tiny mark on the aluminum body where the cap sits on it. Turn the motor clockwise by hand until the rotor lines up with this mark. #1 plug lead should be in the distributor cap hole closest to the rotor in a clockwise direction.
If the motor still does not start rotate all the plug leads 180 Deg.
