Hi, with extended crank, have helper crank it, while you visually check for spark at the plugs. If you have spark everywhere, use a gage and check fuel pressure. Around here, some of the national brand autostores used to loan out a fuel pressure gage, if you don't have one.

If your TBI, can you see the injector spray pattern, that doesn't mean the pressure is good, just that a rpm signal should be present. Any applicable trouble codes?
