1991 Toyota 4 Runner - Not Getting Fuel

1991 Toyota 4 Runner V6.
Will start and run by shooting a little starting fluid in the intake plenum, but will die as soon as the fluid is gone. It keeps blowing the EFI fuse under the hood, so I tried jumping it, but it made no difference. Replaced the fuel pump, and still no change. There is no coolant or muck in the oil. All other fuses inside and under the hood are good. I was thinking of replacing the fuel filter next, but that still doesn't explain the EFI fuse blowing. Anyone have any ideas?

Try taking off the hose from the fuel filter and connecting a feed straight to the fuelpump do that by taking a bottle and filling with fuel an make a hole in the cap for the hose connect to hose turn bottle upside down in the motor and put a air hole in the bottle. Squirt some ethanol into the air intake and then try to turn it over, it helps having 2 people.
