Air - is the car getting air to the cylinders - are both timing belts turning?
Ignition - test the coil to disty cap wire and see if sparks are being produced. check again at the plug wires to the cap, and the plug wires to the plugs. If possible, pull a couple of plugs and see if theyare actually sparking.
Fuel - dump a little gas down the carb throat. Turn the engine over and see if it runs. Check fuel pressure at the carb, or at least fuel flow. If you don't have a pressure tester, you can just take the fuel feed line from the pump and put it into a big jar or small jerry can. Crank the engine over and see if fuel is being pumped into the can.
