Are you guys getting a spark? How do you know you're getting fuel? Are you pulling the plugs to see if they are wet or if the cylinders smell like gas? Do you guys know how to use a multi-meter? You can test every part of your ignition to make sure it's all in spec with one. If the car is turning over but not firing you're missing one of two things. 1.Fuel 2.Spark. You can check the spark by pulling a plug and cranking the car over while the plug is connected to the wire but out of the block. If you can see it arc you're getting spark. Another thing that could be off is your timing, but if it was running fine and then wouldn't start the next minute I'm betting this issue is in your ignition system. You could have a clogged fuel filter, but I doubt it. Check your ignition and go from there. If you need help testing everything pm me and I'll get you an article on how to do it step by step.

Has it been raining there a lot? Maybe you got some water in your dizzy.

To check your ignition you can start by checking for spark first off. That will be an easy one. Then you can pull the dizzy cap and begin to test the limits of everything inside of the dizzy. You can test both the ignitor and coil to make sure your spark is strong enough. Are you getting any CEL's? I forgot if you said you were or not.

I replaced the fuel filter, fuel pump, and drained the fuel rail and put in injector cleaner, it still wants to stall and backfire and I havent had much help on how to do ignition timing
