The camshaft which turns the distributor was broken!
Take the distributor cap off, and see if it turns when you crank the engine over. If not, you have found your problem!
If the distributor does not move when you crank the engine over, the most likely cause is a broken distributor shaft or gear. (My camshaft being broken was a freak thing). Don't
be scared by prices from parts houses or dealers if you need another distributor. You can get a perfectly good used one from Pic-A-Part for under $40.00.
