Your car has an ignition or fuel pump problem. You're either not getting proper fuel or spark. Really could be either. Without seeing the car, it's not possible to say what the exact problem is. This is an obvious headache for you and has taken up a lot of your time. Why don't you take it to a mechanic to diagnose. You'll then have his opinion and estimate and can have him fix it, or use his review as a guide to doing repairs yourself? If you go to an auto parts store they might be able to read codes and they probably won't charge you for this.

It's getting fuel at the carburetor I can see fuel when I move the linkage and I have spark when I remove a plug and lay It on the valve cover. If pull the coil wire out of the distributor and hold it about an inch above the cap it will run that's when I replaced the cap rotor points. And coil but still won't start but turns over good.
