Crank, no start. fuel pump is working. spark plugs (I think)

Customer Question
Crank, no start. fuel...

Crank, no start. fuel pump is working. spark plugs (I think) are firing.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever replaced the fuel pump, or is this the original?

I just replaced the fuel pump and confirmed that it is supplying gas.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chevy?

It is pressurized up to the throttle body. I disconnected the lines and cranked the motor and fuel spilled out everywhere... 1990 s10 blazer

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am doing it myself I had a mechanic come out and do the initial diagnostic. He said it was the fuel pump. I couldn't get him schedule to come back and do the work So I just replaced the fuel pump tonight.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

It's had a good deal of the electrical system replace recently. Spark plugs, wires, distributor, distributor cap and rotor, Ignition coil... that's probably all.
