First, is it carb'd or fuel injected? Which engine? I can tell you that if it is like my '88 FI, I would crack the fitting at the front of the FI assembly (can't miss it-has a big grey plastic knob on the end of it) and get someone to crank...briefly. If fuel sprays, pump is ok and the filter is not clogged solid. I'd then concentrate on the injectors. If it is carbed, I'd crack open the fuel line at the carb and do the same.

I'll keep watching for your updated info and see if I can offer any more advice (from my very limited supply).

D'mon

If it is a 22re, the fuel pump does not come on until the MAF sees intake air flowing (ie, engine cranking). The way around that it a connector under the hood on the drivers side. Rectangular shape and 1 wire. Short it to ground and fuel pump turns on when key is turned on. This is for EFI, not sure about carb'd.
