Check your compression. If all cylinders test very low or zero, it's jumped timing. Also, check that the distributor is clamped down securely and cannot be moved by hand. If it can you'll have to reset the ignition timing. HTH. -Jim

At top dead center it's pointing to cylinder 1

Have you tried spraying some starting fluid down the throttle body? It should run a few seconds on that. If so, it's a fuel problem. If not, time to do the compression test. Since you have spark, it has to be either fuel or compression that's lacking. HTH. -Jim
