82 Oldmoble Delta 88 Royale- wont start

I have an 82 Oldmoble Delta 88 Royale. It is a V8 5.0L 305 engine. I parked it on friday night and on sunday it wouldn't turn over. It sounds like trying to start a car with no gas but I have a full tank. I am getting gas in the carberator and I have spark. I have also replaced the distributor cap and rotor. I did make sure I put the wires back on in the correct firing order (1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2)but it still will not turn over. How do I tell if it is a vacuum leak or compression leak or if my timing chain is broken? Or is it something entirely different that is wrong with it?

I would spray starting fluid in the carb and see if it fires and stalls.How many wires did you check for spark?What condition are the plugs in?
