Do you have spark then? You may have a fuel problem, I would check the fuel pressure with a gauge and also do a bleed down test. You build up pressure on the gauge, turn the key off and watch the gauge to see if it drops. Should not drop more than 5 lbs in 3 minutes. If it does then the spider injection is leaking and would need to be replace. Fuel pressure on that one is 56 to 63 lbs. You get under 50 lbs and she will not start.
