I dont recommend you throw away money like that because 50 is a lot less then 300 plus labor, its still alot. what did you do to check that there was no fuel pressure? did you check your ecu/main relay fuse? and is there no fuel pressure at all? if there is no fuel pressure at all, it would most likely mean a bad main relay. well eithr way, here go the instructions:

1991 honda accord turns over won't start

If there was a way you could attach a flow meter, you could see if the pump is doing its job. If not thats ok. try turning it over for a few seconds and then stop and pull a spark plug and see if its covered in fuel. if it is and you have good spark and your mass airflow sensor isn't gummed up and working good, then you might have a timing belt issue or the timing is just off. if possible hook a scan tool to it and see if any codes pop up. you can borrow one from a parts store generally or if you can take it there they do it for free alot, especially autozone. hope this gives you some ideas you didn't already have. let me know.

1991 honda accord starts intermittently. When it doesn't the gas guage goes below E. Gets spark, no fuel. Already changed main relay.

Hey man if you already changed out the relay i would try changing your fuel pump and sending unit that should stop both of your problems.

1991 Honda Accord won't start

Could be the igniter inside the distributor (unless you have an external coil). Look on your distributor to see if there are 5 wires leading from it. If there are, you have an external coil that is likely bad... If you have only 4 wires coming from your distributor it is most likely the internal ignition inside the distributor ($50.+). AS SOON AS YOU GET IT STARTED CHANGE YOUR OIL. Your fuel pump has loaded your cylinders with fuel and it has probably leaked down into your oil pan making your oil thin and mixed with gas.

1991 Honda Accord starting problem Well the car will not start period it turns over and over and over but does not try to start. First thought the car did not have spark so replaced the cap rotor and coil...

Turn the ignition on to the ON position if the check engine light goes out within 5 seconds then it is not the computer or the pfi relay if it stays on then you probably have a bad PFI relay located under the dash.or computer but most likely the relay.

1991 honda accord. will not start on its own. will start if i spray starting fuel in air intake......i already changed the fuel filter

If the car dies after it runs for a minute then I would suspect either the fuel pump or the fuel pump relay. Turn the key on but not to run, you should hear the fuel pump for about 5 seconds, you could also check the fuel injector rail for fuel pressure, just put a rag over the shrader valve before depressing it, if the pump is making pressure it will squirt out. If still no luck pull the fuel pump relay and jumper the hot wires and listen for the pump.

1991 Honda Accord cranks but will not start

I think you should check the air filter or air intake. It seems like it's not gettin and air to start since when you spray the starting fluid it's runs but stop and it stalls. I think that it's the air supply for the car.
