[V8] No Start

Ah.. I know this feeling. My guess is it's flooded.  I suggest removing all
plugs, drying them, and if it's time to replace them, just do it (Autolite
103s or ??).  I also suggest you make sure the battery is fully charged and
lock and unlock the door with the key to make sure the alarm is properly
disengaged.  I freaked out when this happened on my '91 5 speed and later my
'93 V8.  Traditional no-start with good battery implies crank position
sensor.  But not the weird 'did-I-skip-a-tooth-on-the-timing-belt' sound I
believe you're referring to.

Good luck and let us know what you find, George.
