This is a devious problem which could lie anywhere. So many things not functioning would perhaps be a ground problem. Maybe take some extra care in cleaning the battery terminals, check if the ground wire is connected to the chassis. Do you have rodents in your area? Maybe they nibbled some wire somewhere?

Hi i have an 84 22r 4x4 that had the head gaskett and timing done about 3k ago and a tune up about 100miles ago and the other day it died on me as i was picking up speed in second and wouldn't start again...

If your backfiring most likely the timing is off. I would pull the cam cover and make sure all the timing marks are lining up when it is in Top Dead Center (TDC) Also on the older Toyota's there is a plug in the harness on the drivers side that has to be jumpered in order to set the timing correctly.

I have a 93 duster 3.0 v6 it stalled on me, tried to start it but just cranked. Once i had it towed home waited about an hour tried again, still cranked then let off the key and noticed it had compression,...

Could be a few things. It may be the pickup coil in the distributer starting to go. It could also be the fuel pump, or fuel pump relay starting to go too. It's hard to diagnose without it recurring.
