84 Corvette - no fuel to TBI

by Lawrence T
(Cherokee County, TX)

I had just tuned up the car, started it up and about 10 seconds later it died. When cranking a small amount of fuel can be seen coming through the throttle bodies. IF it does start, then the fuel shuts off completely - nothing coming from the throttle bodies. You can hear the fuel pump but the pressure is only 3 lbs.right as it comes out of the fuel tank. If I connect up the fuel pump directly to the battery it goes up to 10 lbs. I've replaced the fuel pump & screen, fuel filter, and fuel relay. I've tested the TIB with a noid light - no problem there.
Anyone else have this happen?
