    No ignition so disconnect the coils and turn it over for about 15 seconds, until the needle hits as high as it can.

    Place the dial where you can see it from the engine compartment.

I have a 1996 chevy pickup that won't start. Fuel

Have you sprayed fuel/starting fluid into the engine to see if it starts? You can have fuel pressure but no injector fuel delivery, we call this "pulse"

1996 chevy pickup w/305 engine idles @1500rpm high vacuum @oil filler cap

You have a leak - Check all your hoses and replace as needed. Any of them feel soft replace them and probably wouldn't hurt to replace the clamps as well especially if they are the manufactures clamps - Those only last for a few years.
