1980 320i WONT START!! HELP!!!
 
My grandpa has a 1980 BMW 320i. He used to drive it around all the time, but one morning he goes to start it up and it wont start for nothin. He tinkered with it for some time now and so far he's replaced the rotor, distributor cap, plug wires, and fuel filter. The fuel sending unit in the tank works fine. IT JUST WONT START!
ANY SUGGESTIONS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!!!!!

torn air intake boot possibly or any other large air leak, also check the fuses. mine wouldn't start a while ago and it was the fuse to teh fuel pump I think that had a bad connection. I moved them in place and it fired right up
