do you have power at the power feed wire going to the distributer this is the large pink wire should have power with ignition on?
does the rotor turn when cranking the engine over if not may have bad timing chain.

Bad ignition control module. If I had a nickle for every spark plug that was purchased to fix a bad ignition control module, I would be rich. (OK, richer)

I'd agree on the ignition module OR a broken wire on the pole piece on the distributor.

Both common problems on HEI GM V8's.
