I really need some help. I have a 85 corvette w/350 L-98 TPI. Was parked for a while. Started to crank, will turn over, but will not start. HELP>

Re: 1985 Won't start

gotta start with the basics. is there any fuel getting to the injectors? is there spark? with the '85 model, i assume it still has the HEI ignition with the big dist cap? if no spark, start there. see if cap is corroded. it can happen if car sat for some time. check for power getting to coil. could also just be out of gas? check for these things, and let me know.
