If it has spark and is getting gas then there is no reason why it should not start. How do you know it is getting gas?? Have you tried using wd40 directly into the carb/intake to see if it will try to fire up?

Get yourself some rolls of wire and a box of connectors, a pair of wire strippers and a wire end crimping tool, and replace each wire ONE at a time. Your only other option is to take the breather that you removed from the carb to put the gas in, and go find another car that it will fit. Drive that one.

I replaced ignition module and no spark still! I also did the trouble light on the neg on coil and pos on battery and no flashing on light so where do I go now?

Well, assuming that you have the light hooked up correctly ( one side on battery hot post, one on coil neg post, I'd look at the pickup assembly. That is where the module gets its signal to fire the coil. If that is no good then you won't have spark. To replace it, you will need to remove the distributor from the engine, remove the roll pin near the bottom of the stem, pull the drive gear off the stem, a few bolts at the top, and then the whole thing should just come apart. two more screws and the pickup will come out, goes back together in reverse. Take out plug one and stick your finger in the hole, have someone bump the engine until you feel a push of air, and then put the distributor back in set to cylinder one, put the cap and wires back on, plug back in, and then fire it up and time it.

Attach the spark plug wires in the firing order. The firing order should be in your owner's manual. It also might have a diagram next to your ignition coil pack. The ports on the coil pack are shown by the diagram.
