Make sure you have a good hot blue snapping spark and the fuel pressure is within spec.

Those have mechanical injection fuel distributor. And that vehicle is OLD! Issue could be in the distributor unit or the air plate assembly.

You can pull injector and operate airplate by hand and watch it spray.

You can hotwire pump for continuous operation to make it easier.
