Could be failed injector pump. Could be the solenoid on the pump as well.

Is the timing correct? Have you ever run out of fuel?

How was it running before this?

It wasnt working when I brought it, but the lad who had it before said it worked fine until obviously it broke, as far as I know the timing is correct :

Start with basics. Compression, fuel pressure and delivery.
