    Can you hear the fuel pump "prime" itself when you turn the key to the "on" position. It should run for a few seconds. The "on" position is the first position to the right--not the "crank" position.

    You didn't specify what engine you have. If this uses the "spider" injection assembly, it uses popet injectors that take 55psi to force open and deliver fuel. At 50psi, they simply doon't open and dispense any fuel.
