ENGINE FLOODS-NO START

1979 Volvo GLE

Engine Performance problem
1979 Volvo GLE 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 80,000 miles

I have a 1979 Volvo 264 GLE - 163 cu in V-6 Fuel injeted. The engine will not start due to constant flooding.I have good spark at the plugs and the engine has good compression. It will seem to run for about 10 seconds if I hold the gas pedal to the floor after I have disconected the wire at the cold start valve. I can repeat this 10 second run by pulling the fuel pump fuse and flooring the gas pedal to clear the flooded engine but it never revs up.
Is there a fuel pressure regulator that could be faulty or what do you recomend I check next?
Is there a link where I could find a repair manual to help with diagnosis?
Thank you from B.C. Canada
