hey bro, does it sound like it even wants to try and turn over or start..if so give it time, prime the pump a few times without trying to turn it over, and i know it sounds like something to do on a carb engine, but pump the pedal a few times as well..i just replaced the pump in mine, and at first it didnt want to start, primed the pump a few times gave it some gas and it fired right up, also to check if you have pressure, take a pin or something and press in the tip of the driver side fuel rail, you should get sprayed with gas if you have pressure

It takes a few times to prime before everything fills up. I primed four or so times before first crank. If there is gas in your tank that the pump can get, it should work after a few primes.
Checking the schrader on the rail is a good call. If you prime a few times and still have no rail pressure then I would start looking at other solutions.

it could also be the line inside the tank if the pump is running and your not gettin any fuel pull it apart at the filter and see if there is fuel there if not you could have broke the ribbed line inside the tank

I used a fuel hose, the black kind. I am thinking somthing may have come loose.
