Did the truck overheat before shutting down?

Pull a spark plug wire and have someone crank it over. No fire? Check ignition fuse or the hot wire to the distributor. If you have power to the distributor and no fire to plugs then you most likely have a bad distributor coil or other internal distributor problems.
