How did it run before you bought it? You did take your friend and check it out? Check the fuel pressure first and then any pressure regulator,on to fuel filter ,if things are close to what ever a sevice manual says. You do have one of them,right? At least it starts and tries to run,so you should be able to walk through all of the vehicles components one at a time,unless you have zero experience.

89 chevy 3/4 ton. 2wd. 454. AT. truck runs good

check your timing, check that your ignition pick up coil is good. also check your fuel pressure. and check for any vacuum leaks. double check your coolant temp sensor to the ecm it tells the ecm what temp it is and the ecm adjusts the fuel amount accordingly.

1989 Chevy 1 ton wont start

It is likely the electronic ignition control module. When they go, they just go bad and usually when you are driving.

If it was a smaller vehicle it could also be a timing belt but your's has a heavy duty valve train so no worries there.

I have a 1989 chevy silverado 4x4 with a 350, it ran great for ever until now. It starts up, runs rough for a few seconds then just quits, it will do this 10 times in a row then start just fine and run...

Did the problem start when the fuel pump was replaced? It could be some kind of obstruction in the fuel line or a fuel filter acting up - needing replaced, or the filter on the fuel pump somehow didn't get installed correctly. Spend $20 and get a Haynes Repair Manual from Auto Zone to show you step by step instructions with pictures how to troubleshoot just about anything for your make and model.
