Is it the power side or the pulsing ground side that's missing?
Do you have spark?
Does your check engine light come on for bulb check when you turn the key on?

If it's a Vortec, how did you conclude that they weren't spraying?

I was told to pull it apart and turn key to check the injectors. Also it will run with starting fluid.

That's not enough fuel pressure. 55 is about the bare minimum to run and sometimes not enough. 60 to 66 is the spec and it needs every bit of it.

If it runs on starting fluid, it sounds like a definate fuel problem. I agree, check fuel pressure. If its low, remove fuel filter. You should beable to blow through it freely. If not, then its clogged badly, and needs to be replaced. Recheck fuel pressure. It should be in the 55-60 range

I don't think your not going to see 100 pounds out of this pump even dead headed. Peak will probably be about 70 to 75 dead headed. I suspect yours isn't even hitting 60.

Update. Its running but very choppy. I've put a fuel pump, injectors, filter, and plugs. Everything is set right as far as pressures and wires. Any ideas on why its running so rough. Anything else I've overlooked. Thanks
