Default 92 Integra suddenly no crank

This morning I drove it for the first time in a month. Cranked fine, but was
very low on fuel. Drove it to the gas station filled it up, then - no crank!

It turns over fine but no crank! Any ideas?
I'm going to work on it now and will post back.

Depending on the miles it could be the timing belt. I also had a problem
with some little expensive chip in my distributor cap.

That would be a 'no spark' condition.
That "expensive chip" was probably the igniter.I understand they're not
cheap.

If a timing belt breaks,the sound of 'cranking' is radically different
since the cams are not turning,a much lighter load on the starter motor.
I would hope one could tell the difference by ear.I had a timing belt break
on a Civic CVCC many years ago,and the motor really 'whirred' compared to
the normal cranking sound.Fortunately,the CVCC motor was not an
interference design,so no damage was done.YMMV.
