Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just replaced the fuel pump in my 1996 chevy k1500  and now it won't start
so I replaced the fuel filter the fuel relay as well and I also replaced the crank
sensor and I'm getting plenty of fuel pressure up at the fuel rail it will start with
starter fluid but will only run for a few seconds what do I do

Also I have spark and all cylinders and it is the 5.7
