Explain the spark coming from the top of the manifold. Check the battery conenctions, distributor cap and wires going to the spark plugs. All should be clean and show NO signs of shorting out like burn marks. Does the engine turn over when you try to start it?

What about the spark from the intake manifold? Did you check the engine oil? Since you have a multimeter, check the voltage of the battery. Should be around 12.2 volts resting. When you attempt to start the engine the voltage will fall but not below 10.8 volts...

Call Ed at http://oaklandautotech.com/ as he's located close to you and maybe he can stop by when he's out running for parts
