Pull a wire off one of the spark plugs, stick a screwdriver in the end of it, then lay the metal blade of the screwdriver close to the engine; about 1/4" away. Watch for sparks while someone cranks the engine. If there's no steady spark, don't waste your time looking for fuel pressure. If pressure is missing, you either have two different problems, (highly unlikely), or the two things have a common cause.
A likely cause is the crankshaft position sensor. Holler back with the engine size if you want to troubleshoot this system. You will also need a test light or digital voltmeter.
