take the gas cap off and have someone listen at the filler while you turn the key to the on position and see if the fuel pump runs, even if only momentarily.

The fuel pump is running. I changed the distributor and the problem persists, the only time I can get it to run is when I take a plug out and ground it to the body, then it starts no problem. Leads me to believe it could be some kind of grounding issue, but I am not sure.
