1984 300TD - stopped running - suggestions?

I have a 1984 300TD wagon that I have had for a month and ran fine when I purchased it. I took it for a drive the other night. Doing 55 MPH, it made a whirring noise, lost power, coasted to a stop and wont start. The engine will crank but not fire - not seized. The lights and the gauges seem to function, electrical seems OK. Any suggestions on what and where to trouble shoot? Fuel pump, turbo, timing belt, etc? Appreciate any help. Thanks.
