Rent or borrow a fuel pressure gauge. Also, I have two of these cars and earlier this year one would not start. Since it had just been run the night before I knew it had to be something simple or very apparent. I pulled off the throttle control switch connection and low and behold .....corrosion!! A little WD-40 and it fired right over. It was a bugger to get off though. This sits to the right of the throttle-body . Conact me if this helps,
