Hi James and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, have you checked for spark (even if just to rule it out as a suspect)? Still, proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):• check fuel pump action; i.e. prime immediately after switching on the ignition;• determine fuel output of pump without injector;• bench test fuel pump action using spare 12V battery;• check/clean strainer;• is there pulsating voltage to the injector when attempting to start;• soak/clean injector using appropriate solution.
