Hey guys this coming weekend Im picking up this 95 RRC that won't start according to the actual owner ,this is what happen ..there was a tic noise coming from the engine and a friend of his father decided to play mechanic he did a tune up + fuel pump ,tune up included new plugs ,cables and distributer cap and rotor but he saids that after all that the truck never started again , what I found is that the cap was not even strap on and every thing looks brand new as he stated , this guy can't give much info since he knows nothing about cars , he is thinking I need to do a engine swap , battery is dead so I could not tested but Im going to mess with it over the weekend with my limited mechanical skills , making sure all cables are attach the right way and distributer cap is on right new fuel (it's been sitting for 10 months) and battery and cross my fingers .
My question is if you do a simple tune up like this what could cause the truck not to start again? what went wrong?
This guy didn't even notice that the cap was not even strap on.

Really hard to give a definitive answer. Very unlikely it needs an engine change, but some basic dianosis needs to be done. Does it have spark, fuel and compression. Start with that and we'll go from there...
