I've had several that burned thru the rotor. Changed that and all was well.

If it cranks, has spark and air then start looking to fuel. Pump, relay ect.. If you have fuel like you said is the pressure there to supply enough to run/start?

Just for Schweeb

What color spark is at the plug? If its blue and not yellow, then you would want to check your fuel pressure. Does the exhaust smell fuel when you crank it over and have you tried holding it at half throttle or more while trying to crank it?
