1987 corvette no start. Driving me nuts, need help...

by John Siordia
(Las Vegas)

1 month ago replaced automatic trans, ran great. Went to gas station filled it up wont start. Towed home, barely ran. Changed out fuel pump, strainer, fuel pump holder and harness, fuel filter, fuel pump relay, fuel pump fuse. Engine cranks, no start still. Cant recover the codes, battery disco'ed during fuel pump repair. good volts at fuse box, 12.3 while cranking, good oil pressure. Even changed the oil press fuel press sending unit. Still no start. Tried starting fluid, runs for 3 seconds then nothing. Good spark at the ignition wires after using tester. What next?
