2001 Volvo S80 Won't Start

Prior to this problem - the car had an error code P0011- Intake Camshaft Position Timing - Over-Advanced (Bank 1)

Otherwise car started and drove fine.

Last Friday, my wife filled the tank at a station about 2 miles away in Ramsey and then drove home.
The next morning, my daughter started the car, put the car in reverse and moved about a foot when the car stalled and would not start.

I noticed that when trying to start the car, the tach needle did not move.

I checked the following:

Placed the battery on a charger to keep it charged while attempting to find the problem.
Checked the fuel pump fuse - #33. Was good
Fuel Pump Relay. SKIPPED because car passed pressure test
Checked for pressure at the fuel rail. Fuel flows from the schrader valve when depressed and re-pressurizes after turning key a few time. While there appears to be pressure, I don’t hear the fuel pump engage.
Pressure test at schrader valve and got 54psi on crank then 52 and 15 minutes later down to 40psi
Sprayed starting fluid in the air duct and tried to start.
Replaced the engine camshaft position sensor.
Replaced the engine crankshaft position sensor. The tach now moves a bit when trying to start.
Replaced the Variable Cam Solenoid and gasket which might have been the source of the P0011 error. Reset the error code. Needed to cut the old connector off and fit a new style connector.
Checked for spark and got it.
Called gas station, He doubts problem with gas. They get 2 tankers per day.
Removed throttle body. Tried to start the car while viewing the butterfly. The butterfly does not move when I press the accelerator.
Sent the throttle body back to a company that repaired the throttle body a year ago and offered a lifetime warrantee. They just called to tell me that the throttle body tests as good.
Only thing I have not changed in the mass airflow sensor. There are no obstructions in the duct and the sensor look fine. I ordered a new one that will arrive on Monday.

Anybody have any idea of what might be wrong?
