Still would check the fuel pump pressure, it should be 56 to 62 lbs. Also do a bleed down test, if it looses more than 5 lbs in 3 minutes, then it is an indication of the regulator, spider lines, or injectors that are leaking. If you squirt some starting fluid down the air intake or some gas and it fires up, then you have a fuel issue.

Thank you! I just got it fixed. The rotary cap had a hairline crack in it. Once we replaced it, it fired right up.
