The other thread you mentioned is probably dealing with a bad ecu since he doesnt have the CEL. Your problem is definitely different and I really didnt want to confuce you on the thread with some of the checks he needs to do.
You have good compression so the timing has to be on. You hear the fuel pump come on but that doesnt mean you are getting correct fuel to the rail. Always check your fault codes:
Depress the schrader on the fuel rail and see if you have fuel coming out of the rail. If you do the try a shot of starter fuid directly into the throttlebody and see if it cranks. I would also consider doing the fuel pressure test. You can borrow the pressure guage from any of the big parts stores with a fully refunable deposit. 31 psi at idle and 39 psi when it runs.
The last possibility is the spark is occuring at the wrong time or is weak. Is the spark blue color? Did you check it and make sure it is at a good repitition? There is a possibility that the pickup sensor in the distributor is bad and if that is the case you can get one and replace it or with the entire distributor. The later is the best choise IMO. It is $about $25.00 more and work every penny of it.
