Engine won't fire?

The engine won't fire. It starts to crank but will never catch. It's a 318 4bbl. Car is a '74 Duster. We've tried everything to get it working, and nothing works. We think it has no compression...we have spark and fuel delivery. Any thoughts?

I'd guess the chain too....does it backfire at all when cranking?
No compression will do it too (from my experience with a 340, also bend things). Try a compression test
