Have you checked for spark? If there isn't it could be the TDC sensor.

Yeah I got a spark but the fuel pump is dead but its working fine if I connect it to the battery,even had the fuel line off while starting and not one drop of fuel,changed the relay and there is no blockage to the pipe as I have had a mouth full of fuel

If the fuel pump works and the relay is new then there must be a break in the wiring somewhere.

I had this once,check under the rear seat there is a wire that goes to the fuel pump is and check these arn't broke.As a temp fix you could run power to the wires here straight from the battery to get the pump working.

Under the seat thats not the fuel pump, thats the fuel sender unit which has 3 wires coming from it.

I think he meant you have to lift the seat and pull forward the carpet, the fuel pump wire feeds through there.
