First, realize that if the timing belt is stripped, distributor won't rotate, and no sparks will fire.

The electrics are real simple. Power from the ignition switch and fuse arrives on the yellow-black wires. Check that the igniter and the coil get power when the key is on, and while cranking. Have you tried changing the coil?
