Ok.
Having a problem with a Non-starter!!!!

Drove it to my shop and it stalled out. Was able to restart and it started fine. Moved it to the parking space (aprox. 50' away). Died again in the parking space and has not started since.
Replaced;
Fuel pump
Fuel regulator
and Under hood Relay (Green).

We can pour gas into the hose that leeds to the throttle body and it will start (until the gas burns out) then it just turns and turns but does not start.
Please let me know what else I can try.

Could it be an air bubble in the line somewhere?

It could be that the fuel filter is obstructed. Did you replace it? Can you put a fuel pressure gauge on the fuel line to check it for pressure. It should read around 45 lbs. It's defnitely a fuel starvation problem. Wouldn't be a bubble in the line as it would dissipate as soon as the pressure went through.

sounds like fuel relay or fuelpump not working or fuelfilter stopped up
