Are you getting fuel, hear the fuel pump prime? Check for fuel pressure, then spark.

Check on the internet, it will show you how and the location to place the pressure gauge. I made my own pressure gauge, but you can purchase an inexpensive one from Harbor Freight.

    When key turned to start position, engine turns over but does not start. When key is released, starter continues to turn over engine until key turned off.
