OK, if you have fuel in the rail, then the pump is probably working OK. The manual says to put a pressure gauge in there, if I recall correctly, but just observing fuel in there is a good sign. There is a procedure in the manual to test the injectors, but basically, energize one externally (pull the connector and connect the injector terminal straight to 12V) and listen for the click.

But backfire once, seems like probably something else. My first guess is the distributor is stabbed wrong. Maybe 180 off?
