test at the fuel pump, plenty of power to drive that~ the tank has a ground strap too, make sure it's attached~ test with a multimeter, suspect a bad ground or insufficient ground is at play here~

I’m having the same issue, turning over but no fuel at injectors. Pump is good too. Put gas in the barrels and it starts briefly

I'm having the same problem on my 88 k1500 I'm getting fuel all the way to the TBI but than it gets nothing coming out of my injectors
