I would use a smoke detector (like this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIBR-gwsE_0 purchasable from kustomsmoke@yahoo.com) or use a cigar and blow smoke into the fuel line under the hood (warning: keep the cigar away from the engine). This will show you where you have a leak. The smoke is the fuel spilling on the engine and you can't get it to start because of lack of fuel. If it wasn't for the smoke I would say it was the fuel pump.
