Exclamation 72' CJ5 help!!

A while back I was having someone from this forum helping me figure out how to get my jeep started... unfortunately due to some unforeseen events it caused me to disappear for a while. Now I am back and Need someone anyone's help!

I have a 1972 CJ5. It has been sitting for 10 plus years and has not been ran.
Parts replaced:
-Spark Plugs
-Starter
-fuel filter
-distributor cap (before it was parked)
- ignition

The engine is not seized, but there is no spark at the plugs and for the life of me I can not figure out why. I have basic knowledge of whats what on a car but not how to problem solve issues. I need help obviously, It would be great if someone who is willing to take the time and effort to help me get this started... I need pictures with markings and detail, in simplest form! Please someone help!!!

2 things come to mind on that year. Check the distributor rotor as they are noted for shorting to ground. And the ignition module is a problem

So it turns out it was because the belt was so worn and lose that it wasn't turning with the pully it was just sitting there while it was spinning. So now I know the engine starts but will it run.. I am trying to get the air filter back together... don't laugh haha.. I am doing my best with what little knowledge i have so any diagrams for the air filter housing for my 72 cj5 would be great!!
