I should have said the fuel is dripping off the exhaust. See pic. Here's what I found this morning...

1. Checked all fuel injectors and they are seated tight.
2. Checked for leaks from fuel lines.
3. I pulled the plastic cap off the ignition coil as it seemed to be pushing the wire out and keeping it from connecting.
4. Checked all plug wires to ensure they were engaged.
5. Checked the distributor wires and pulled off the cap, all looked good.

Turned it over to see if it would fire. It did but still would not start and again flooded.

From here I pulled all the plugs. Fuel was present on all plugs but 1 and 5.
I pulled the relay so it would not fire and then pulled the injector for 5. I turned over the engine to see if I got fuel. No fuel from either 1 or 5 injectors.

I plan to replace both lines and injectors. The car sat for a long time so I suspect the fuel in these lines has clogged them up.

The fuel is only dropping out of the exhaust nowhere else.
