I suggest you do three things: 1) get a noid light and check that the proper signals are being sent to the fuel injectors to insure they are being told to fire 2) spray some starting fluid in the throttle body and see if it starts. if it does, the problem is fuel related. if it doesn't, you have a spark problem 3) do you hear the fuel pump come on for a few seconds when you turn the key to "on" but not start the engine? if not, check the ground wire for the pump located between the gas tank and rear bumper.

The pump is powered by the relay. The relay is grounded by the computer. It gets a ground signal for the first 3 seconds, then only if the computer sees oil pressure or RPM to know the engine is running. You should be able to ground the relay and run the pump for several minutes. After 30 seconds you should be at max pressure. Normal pressure is 15psi for a truck that has throttle body injectors such as a mid 80s model, and 65psi for trucks that have port fuel injection like yours. You may have the wrong pump.
Fuel tank must be removed prior to fuel pump service.
Using a hammer and a brass drift, carefully tap the fuel pump lock-ring counter-clockwise to release the fuel pump.
Remove the fuel pump and its O-ring from the fuel tank, and discard the old O-ring.
Cover tank openings to prevent dirt from entering system.
FUEL GAUGE SENDING UNIT REMOVAL
Gently bend the sending unit locking tabs away from the sending unit.
Remove the electrical connector cover (red). Remove the sending unit wires from the electrical connector.
Use one screwdriver to push on the fuel pump body, and use another to release the sending unit locking tab from the sending unit.
Slide the sending unit assembly off of the fuel pump reservoir housing.
Pull the wires through the reservoir body and fuel pump cover plate.
FUEL GAUGE SENDING UNIT INSTALLATION
Bend the sending unit wires and lay them into the slot on the back of the sending unit.
Slide the sending unit into the slots on the fuel pump reservoir body. Slide the wires through the triangle shaped hole in the fuel pump reservoir body. Check that the tab in the fuel sending unit locks into the detent in the fuel pump reservoir body.
Slip the wires onto the tab of the fuel pump reservoir body.
Slide the sending unit wire terminals into the electrical connector. Install the terminal locking cover.
Slide the fuel sending unit electrical connector into the bottom of the fuel pump electrical connector. Check that the connectors are securely attached and fully pushed into each other.
FUEL PUMP INSTALLATION
Wipe seal area of tank clean, and install a new O-ring seal on pump.
Position fuel pump module in tank and secure with the lock-ring.
Using a hammer and a brass drift, carefully tap the fuel pump lock-ring clockwise to lock the module in place. NOTE: Do not overtighten the lock-ring, because the fuel pump seal could split and leak.
Install fuel tank assembly. NOTE: ASD and fuel pump relays remain energized for 7 minutes during the following test, unless the test is stopped or the ignition switch is turned to the OFF position.
Using scan tool, place ignition switch in "RUN" position and use Actuate Output Test "Auto Shutdown (ASD) Relay", to activate fuel pump and pressurize system.
