did you disable the kill switch to see if that is the problem?

Check for spark and then check the fuel pressure. Turning the key on in quick succession won't prime it- you need to turn the key on, wait for the relay to latch so the pump turns on for three seconds, then crank it. If you want to repeat this, you need to wait for 5 seconds or more after turning the key OFF.

If you have no spark, press on the clip that's on the safety switch- if it's always left on there, the plastic deforms and won't press on the switch enough for it to start.
