Look at the fuel shutoff solenoid, located to the left of the injection pump. It has to retract when you turn on the key, and has to stay retracted for engine to get fuel. You can remove the two bolts holding it in place and slip it back, to see if the engine will start. If it does, then you can check the solenoid for battery voltage with the key on If it has voltage and does not retract, the solenoid needs to be replaced.
