Good morning, my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
I read what you wrote. I don't know what you have and have not done for testing. What kinds of questions do you have?
Also, will this engine stay running at any rpms? Will it run at a higher rpms but not idle, or idle but not run at a higher rpms? Or does it just attempt to start and then nothing?

Just attempt to start and then nothing
Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.
When did this problem start?
I don't know what you have for tools or abilities, but the basics would be checking compression, spark output, and fuel pressure. Have those checks been done yet?
