1987 vanden plas won't start

The fuel has to be under pressure in the fuel rail. Quick check for the pressure: pinch off the fuel return line and get an assistant to crank the engine. If it needs a new check valve in the rail. Fuel is just circulating in a loop from the tank. No pressure being generated to enable fuel injectors to "fire".
If FP ok, then check the neutral sw in the trans selector hsng. if not operated when selector is in P or N engine will not start.

Check air flap in the throttle valve body is not stuck in open position. and is free to operate.The idle bleed /cold start valve needs the air flap to be operational.

Check connecting bellows between throttle body and inlet m'fold to ensure no air leaks. If leaking it will by-pass the control in the throttle body.

Not aware of your skills so for me to start getting into the other possibles would be a bit premature.

Replace thermistat

I believe that year had the 3.1L or 3100 engine in it, (correct me if I am wrong and I'll see if any corrections to my information is needed). If that is so, then replacing the thermostat in that engine is not as straight forward as most. The reason is that the thermostat is mounted in a vertical position on the side (drivers side) of the engine and is in tight quarters because it is surrounded by the cross over exhaust pipe and boxed in by the throttle body and a few other things.

It can be done, but it is time consuming getting to it.
