did you try to spray some starter fluid in the intake and see if it starts???


If u got fuel pressure and doesn't start til u spray starting fluid in the throttle body, replace cranksaft sensor


You may still have a fuel issue. I see you replaced the fuel pump, fuel pressure should be 56 to 63 lbs. Should do a fuel bleed down test. This would indicate leaky injectors or leaking fuel regulator connections. Build up the fuel pressure on a gauge hooked up to the Schrader Valve, turn the key off and watch the gauge. If fuel pressure drops more than 5 lbs in 3 min. the spider injection assembly would need replacing.
