Welcome to the crew!

As you go through the steps in Ted's Excellent No-Start Guide, you will no doubt find the trouble (my money is on the safety lanyard).  If you get stumped, come back with more details and maybe a list of what you have tried.

Thanks for the reply’s so far

Safety lanyard is fine that was the first thing I checked when it turned off

the fuel pump primes, I have constant voltage at the alternator I’m thinking it’s not getting spark? Why would that of happened ?

Coil, ICM-ignition control module, cap, rotor. Fuel pump sounds ok ? Next, I'd pull a plug and look for spark.

For sure get a fuel pressure gauge and put in on the fuel rail.  You should have roughly 42 PSI after the initial prime no matter what the engine is doing.

Like @Steve B. said, check for spark the usual way, like pulling a plug or the coil wire.  Heck, put new plugs, cap, and rotor in if you can't tell when they were changed.  For that matter, change the wires as well.  They do change resistance with age.

It is possible the previous owner changed the ignition module under the cap but didn't use thermal compound.  They are heat sensitive.

Ignition control modules are cheap and simple to swap.  As Gary mentioned, when you put the new one in place, make sure to slather the surface of the module where it mates to the distributor plate with the paste that comes with the unit.
