After repalcing most every component in the spark train I now have solid spark and the engine fires up with the aid of starter fuild everytime but dies. Wher would you suggest I start my efforts and what items to check. It is not timed well since I replaced the cam position sensor during my quest for fire.

You got spark now check the fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge. See specs below

Maximum 64 - 85 psi (441 - 589 kPa)

Hold over 50 psi (343 kPa) after 5 min.

FUEL SYSTEM PRESSURE (REGULATED)

With 18 - 21 inHg Vacuum To Regulator 31 - 38 psi (216 - 265 kPa)
