If you are not getting fuel,and have checked all the above,i think you may need to check that fuel pump again,even thoe it is new,sometime,s you get a new bad one.

Disconnected the fuel line from the fuel rack, put a pressure gauge on it and cranked the engine, Zero pressure. Waited a while then put key into the ignition and turned to ON position, which should have primed the fuel line, nothing coming out of the fuel tank. I am going to check the electric connector at the pump. It it tests good, then I will drop the tank and pull the pump.
