Angry having such a hard time locating re-set for fuel pump to see if that could be the pro

Just can't get my F-150 EFI to start I need my truck and I love my truck, Fuel pump seems to be working could it be that it is just not getting enough spark or none at all. It is a 96 and have replaced many parts I am at my wits end but know the problem is some somple thing I am overlooking. I would appreciate any advice . I will be in and out for a while but will answer all suggestions Thank you all in advance you are a great bunch of people and just want you to know that. Thank you my friends you are a God send. I know I will run it down with your help thank you from ny heart...

Did you check the wires/fuses for the fuel pump? Do you hear it running?
I believe inertia switch is behind the kick panel on the passenger side, but if you can hear the pump running, that's not the trouble. Did you try restricting the flow of fuel back to the tank on the other side of the pressure regulator? I see you had no pressure when you checked with the gauge. The system builds pressure by restricting flow back to the tank with the fuel pressure regulator. If it is not working, the fuel just flows right through the injector rails and back to the tank.

Hook the pressure gauge up and see if you get pressure - if yes, its the pressure regulator - (the thingy with the vacuum line going to it - check that line, too)

i just came home to eat - I'll be going back to work in about an hour - or 45min
Good luck!
