ill it start with starting fluid. That will tell you is you have a fuel issue.
What color is the spark?
You need bright BLUE and a quick SNAPPING spark.

Then it is fuel issue. What is your pressure? When the key is on and when you try to start it. Have you checked fuses? Have you tried to jump the ballast resistor? It is a white ceramic block on the drivers fender. Take a small wire and connect the two wires together.

You have a bad regulator. Pull the vacuum line off it and try it, but it may not help. It needs to be replaced.

Or a bad fuel pump.

And just for clarification on the distributor, you can unplug the little harness on a REnix dizzy and it will still run.

If you own a Renix Jeep, you'll want to check this out.

OP said new fuel pump, but it could have been bad out of the box. It happens more often than not.
