The OP claims no fuel is coming out of the fuel distributor with
the lines disconnected, but claims fuel sprays from the cold start valve.
That means he has fuel pressure but it's not making
it out to the injectors. The piston in the dist is stuck or the
internal passages are bolcked above the diaphram.
This is based on the information he gave me in multiple PM's.
I can say fuel dist failures are very common on cars/engines
that have sat unstarted for a year or more. Both of his did.
