Use a pressure tester and make sure your getting fuel. The link is a picture of one. http://www.autopart.com/tools/toolsmain/tool/T_3430.htm most parts stores sell them. If your pressure is normal use search on link and type in noid light. Check power to injector.
Normally its a bad fuel pump but a pressure regulator is built into the injector holder. Their is also a fuel pump relay available at scrapyards and some parts stores. If a friend has a chevy of this age try his if it starts buy a new one.
If you lay down beside the fuel tank I can here the fuel pump run. If it don't run use a DVOM or 12 volt test light and check for power to the pump if you have power buy a new pump. If you use a pin and put it into the wire to check voltage coat it with silicon.
