Unhappy 81 320i NO START NEED HELP!

So i'm driving my e21 around my neighborhood and take a turn then all of a sudden my car just dies. Then i try start it agian and nothing it just cranks and cranks, then finally i got it to start but i wouldn't idle so i had to keep my foot on the gas put in gear and moved it to the side of the street then after that it wouldn't start again. i replaced plugs with NGK's and also the cap and rotor and still noting. i check my spark by pulling the spark plug wire stuck a flat head and grounded it and i had spark and did the same thing off the distributor. then i pulled one of the clear fuel lines off of number 4 cranked and it sprayed fuel. i then removed the air filter and sprayed starter fluid and nothing. i dont know what else to do if you know whats wrong please help me out thanks.
