Hi Lynne,
We might need a little more to go on... any more symptoms you can give
us? Can your friend get it started at all, and how does it run when it
does start? What has been tried and failed so far?

The 87 is carbeurated. Since your friend has checked for fuel and
spark... I assume he's checked other obvious things like choke, plug
wires, plugs. Is the timing ok? I don't think that truck has a crank
sensor... someone else can chime in if I'm wrong.
