first off,do you hear the pump run 2 seconds at key on? if so then pressure check at fuel rail, and if low why? pinch off return at pressure regulator for test,or pull vaccume off regulator for a test,thats a start anyway

Most bantams pumps are so quiet you cant hear them. Check the righthand side of your injectors/fuelrail there is 2 fuel pipes that clip on the fuel rail the bottom one is from the pump. Push the 2clips on it to remove it and clip it back again. Do this 2 or 3 times to make sure the oneway valve in it is opening. Then try and start it if still nothing, then have someone try start it, and while the engine is turning clip loose the bottom pipe. You should have some petrol. Presure, just watch your eyes. If there is no sign of any presure, reset your management system. You can do this by removing both batery terminals, turn the ignition To start position and at the same time push the brakes for about 10 seconds. This is to drain all electricity from your management system and all capasitors that might have stored electricity that could keep any wrong feulmaps memory. Reconnect batery terminals and try start again. If still nothing, recheck for feul presure by uncliping the bottom feul pipe. If still nothing check that the plug, Botom right of the intake manufault at the throttle is pluged in and no loose wires. Also check the harness plug to the right of that that runs over thegearbox. Those 2 plugs work the fuelpump. The harness on the fuel rail that runs left of the head to the crankangle cam sensor and to the back firewall to another harness plug works the spark the and the injectors pulse rate. If there is no presure on the bottom feul pipe check the harness on the right with all its plugs. Pull them out and back in 2. Or 3 times to make sure there is no dry conection. You could also check the oil presure Guage underneath the inlet manufault. As far as i know on early rocam models as a safty mesure the fuel pump would cut if no oil presure reading. If still nothong jeeees dude, fuses are not the only things to blow, there is also relays involved. I doubt you would have any obstruction in the feul line, as i have never come across that one on a bantam yet. If you are still batling after all i have given you i suggest. An auto electrician or if you wana try and solve it yourself, id be more than happy to dropbox you my complete all models ford bantam rocam petrol and diesel 1655 odd page workshop manual. Pdf.
