Ok, the car does start, but only when you cram starting fluid into the intake. Once all the starter fluid is gone it dies. I have spent a few days finding the fuel pump relay, under drivers seat, and replaced it. I next removed and replaced the fuel tank. I got a new fuel pump. I checked both the old one and new one. Old did not run when connected to a battery, new one did. I put it back in the car. I got it all connected and put some fuel, about 2 gallons, in it. Primed the pump by cycling the key several times without starting it. I put a small amount of starting fluid in the intake manifold. I cranked it over, it ran until the starting fluid was gone. I repeated this about 4 more times and figure the pump must be pressurized by this time. Started cranking and still no start. I disconnected the fuel rail to see if fuel was there. It was there, but did not spew everywhere as expected. It trickled out. I am at a loss and running out of time and money. Any ideas would greatly be appreciated. thanks in advance.

now the battery is dying. We did not hit anything, but a friend said maybe it was the fuel shutoff. Where is this located and how can I tell if it is off?

it was the shut off

It was the shut off. It must have been tripped when we tried bump starting it. It runs great now. Just need to weld up a new exhaust. The old one fell off about a week before pump went. Needed it running before it needs an exhaust. Will be welding one in tomorrow. Thanks for all the help
