Vl wont start..

https://youtu.be/vgkgdcvF8TU

The video above is what the vl is doing.. its a 87 if that means anything.

I have replaced the Crank angle sensor, both fuel pumps, fuel filter, coil, plugs, leads. I have fuel and i have spark... but it will not fire. Driven home one day and wont start the next..

Also i have checked the injector replay next to the battery and it has power which should mean the diode is ok..

Any help here would be hot.. I have searched many threads and done what people have recommended but no luck.

You sure you have fuel?
Pull hose off going into the rail and make sure good constant flow?

Yeah definitely got fuel Deano, I changed the plugs yesterday. Waiting on a cas to come from eBay, was misfiring off its head the last time it was started.
Which led me to believe it was spark.. But if you click on this blokes YouTube link, that's basically how it sounds. I've got no idea how to check the reverse polarity sensor.

Also on the must check list. I've got to go grab my old man's timing light.

Thanks for your input, it's got about 10 litres in there.. I'll put another 10 in, see if that changes anything.
