The engine needs 3 things to run: air, fuel, spark

You say it smells of fuel, so 1 should be covered. Pull a plug, reattach to wire, lay it on the valve cover and try to start it. You (or someone else) should see the spark when doing so. If not, that could be your issue.

Is the timing belt intact?

ok so heres the update. i changed the dizzy and now it wants to start but i noticed my battery gets drained when i try to crank the engine.

as of the spark i do get it and the smell of gas is still there. i noticed the van wants t start but thn cuts out. like i stated abve when i do my battery light comes on and so does the oil? im stuck and this is the first thing that goes wrng with my ody... should i take her to a doctor (mechanic) or just see what happends once i carge the battery?
