I have also used a little starting fluid and still nothing. Not sure what to do.

When did it last run? Do you have any smoke when cranking? If you loosen the fuel line from the tank to the injector body, do you have fuel flowing from the tank? If you do, tighten the line, and loosen the high pressure line nut, and see if there is fuel spraying when trying to crank.
