560SL not starting (1988)

I am having issues getting my 560SL to start
I was out driving on a hot night - stopped at the store, turned car off, went in, and came back to car, and it would not start
I had the car towed home to work on it, so here is what I have done so far:

Tested spark - I get spark when I test and since I the air cleaner off I have replaced the spark plugs - all wires are good
Tested fuel - Fuel pump cuts for 2 seconds on when key is turned - pulled relay to check it was OK, when pulled - pump did not go on - when put back the relay, it did. I loosed the line for the cold start injector to see if fuel was making it throught when the pump cut on, and fuel is getting through
I sprayed started flufid down the intake manifold and tried to crank it - nothing
None of these things have helped.
I think I have covered the basics.
Anyone have any suggestions, I am stumped?
