Engine starts and immediately stops

My neighbor has a 1973 450 SEL. It stopped running and he had it towed in. The engine will immediately fire off and immediately die. We have checked the fuel pressure, timing, and the power from the coil. It has electronic controlled fuel injection, not mechanical. We are not familiar with this system and need more info and direction than the Haynes manual can give. Any replies to a possible solution are welcome. This car is extremely fun to drive and 80% restored; so we want to get it up and running again!

Scroll down to the W116 forum and check out the diagnostics in the stickys on the Jetronic fuel injection systems. This should help!
