make sure it's pressurizing in the rail. if it is, then unplug an injector plug from one and get a 194 bulb. bend the leads of the 194 bulb out so that they can be put into into the injector connector, and watch for an injector pulse when cranking.

Keep it simple - put a fuel pressure gauge on the schrader valve
Should be 35 - 45 psi

sounds like air in your fuel lines. push in schrade valve with key on but not running and hold valve in until only gas comes out. use rags to catch gas.

I've had 2 issues of not starting on my 87 2.9. 1. Was the distributor module. 2. Was shredded flywheel
