Repost: '83 380 SEL no start

Drove for roughly 4 hours, shut off at the pump, filled her up & no start but. Compression while turning over seems fine. Engine temp. was at normal operating level.
Any advise?

Try starting with shifter in N rather than P.

If its turning over, then its not the neutral safety switch.

For a quick spark test, take out one of the plugs and ground the plug housing to metal. When you crank over the engine you can see if its simply getting spark or not.
