Do you still have the stock coil? Put it back on and see what happens.
It could be any number of things though. Check your T-belts. Pull the distirbutor cap and turn the motor over.. have someone look to see if the rotor is turning.

I am going to get the ignition module tested to see if that is the problem.

start the car and for the minute that its running feel the fuel pump and verify its pumping, you will feel it vibrate. tghe fuel pump is located in front of the passenger rear tire under the car above a triangular mounting plate. be careful the mounting bolts may twist off, have the cable ties handy!
if you have some help feel the pump when the key is turning and feel for it to stop.
if it does stop, you can run a toggle to the pump from somewhere + on the fuse panel or wire it into the + terminal of the coil. this will keep it going until you find the problem, if its invilving the fuel pump circuit

Then it started loping and smoking, and then died. I restarted it and had to keep my foot on the gas pedal to keep it running, it smoked the whole time.
sound more like the carb is dumping,
due normally to
a float needle and seat problem.
Peer down the carb throat with a flashlight while it is idling....
is gas kind of pouring onto the throttle plate?
Were the plugs black when you pulled them to regap them?

I had to take the air cleaner off and raise the idle to limp it 15 miles to my new house when I moved.
So ya if you see a little waterfall of fuel going in the carb.... either swap the carb or clean/rebuild it. (I swapped in a low mileage used one for like $25 )
