I have an 86' and the only thing that has left me is timing belts and fuel pump.
Fuel, spark and time and it should run.
If your rotor turns try a shot of starter fluid. If nothing check for spark. If you have spark, and starter fluid yields nothing then its back to timing belts I would think.

Not carb'd - it's a 1988 SPFI, 5 speed, 4wd GL wagon...
I loved my 88 wagon... as above posts... probable timing belt, set screw on rotor etc.. etc... just wanted to say... something about those 88 wagons, spfi... they just love to go!
Let us know what you find...

Car is fixed - after less than 10 minutes! Pulled off disty cap...whoa, behold a screw just layin' in there and the rotor spins around freely...got a screwdriver, a little tape to hold set screw to 'driver, and, voila! Fixed! Runs like a top again...I love simple easy fixes! On top of it all, I found a parts car with alloy wheels and some other stuff to spiff up her car...its been a good day! Thanks again for all the help - you all make owning an older subie worth the occasional pain and suffering. Now I just need to plan swapping my WRX motor and tranny into the 87 GL 4wd hatch...dreams are awesome.
