Distributer. 302 68 mustang

Car backfired when on the gas I let up then ran fine. Finally just died And couldn't get it running again. Now the distributer doesn't turn what is my next move.

Remove the distributor and replace the stripped gear.

Hi it could also be the timing chain.. pull a valve cover and see if the valves move if they don't then most likely chain is broken.
sometimes the cam lobe the points run on can get gummed up and cause the points to jump around causing a miss.
good luck
