    Did you replace the fuel filter ? You can have fuel to the T.B. but is it enough pressure ? Have you tried resetting the computer by disconnecting the battery for a couple minutes ? The next step would be hooking up a decoder to get the failure codes and that would tell you where to go for a fix.

    check and see if you have power at the connection on the injector if not there is a fuseible link off the battery to the injector that goes bad. if you have power check and see if you are getting injector pulse in the other wire. that will light up a test light going from the wire to ground while you are cranking. takes 2 people and if you are not sure how to test it take it in somewhere it is very easy to burn up a relay if you touch the wrong wire with power

    Your not supposed to do that. :hammerhead:
    Sorry but I'm not sure where to go next, Seems like there would have been some kind of failure code. :confused: Shame it isn't your 76 given the problem I can handle that one.

    Sorry again
    Lots a luck

    How many miles are on the odometer? Did the engine just suddenly stop running?
    Does the "service engine soon" light still come on when you turn the ignition switch to On?
    Do you have the repair manual?

    hey you need to see if the injector is being pulsed. if you dont have a noid light ( wich is a test light to check injectors) try using a simple test light. disconect the injector harness. turn the key on and one side should have power. the other side is ground. the ecm grounds the injector therefor pulsing it. hook the test light up in series with the harness and hve someone crank the truck. if the light pulses the problem is probly the injector. if no power check the fuse that feeds the injector. if you have power,but no pulse it is probly the ecm not grounding the injecter. try replacing the ecm.
