I forgot when I first tested fuel pressure it was in spec but would drop to 0 after the pump stopped upon further testing I found a faulty pressure regulator replaced it and pressure holds

since you have fuel pressure, spark and injector pulse, I would check compression to be sure you did not loose a timing chain.

how many miles on the motor??

230k I will test compression in the morning
