I am not sure if this will help or not but have you considered that the distributor is not making contact to turn the rotor? I know sometimes the rod connects the distributor to the camshaft. Many times they are two-piece or one-piece and they can either break when they are the one-piece or a cog on the two-piece rod will wear away. I would remove the distributor and inspect the rod to verify if it is one piece or two-piece and if it is two-piece make sure the cogs are in good shape and making contact with the connecting piece. You should also be able to use a magnet to get the second part out if it is two-piece.
