How old is the fuel? These newer methanol fuels go bad very quickly.
I suspect that you are going to have to drain out the old fuel and put in a new fuel filter before this is going to run. Always add some fuel stabilizer to the fuel if you plan on letting it sit for any time at all..............say over 2 months. Hope that proves helpful here. Please get back to me if you need more on this as all follow ups are included in our fee.
The easiest way is to disconnect the fuel line at the fuel rail and test the pressure there. Or hook up a bleed line to a container and see if it pumps fuel into it..............but, that won't tell you the pressure.
Were you able to get this to fire up? If not, please get back to me and we can sort this out. IF you think a phone chat would be more beneficial here we can offer that for you. I will be around all week-end.
I would get a good repair manual for this model. I am adding a link for a good source. Try E-Bay or Amazon as well. Ford dealers may have some good ones as well. Let me know if you need more.

Check with the local shops to see who does mobile repair work in your area that has experience in fuel issues on these. Checking this out wouldn't tank that long.
