Exclamation Confirmed fuel starvation, now what?

I posted earlier that I was having my first CIS problems (My first CIS problem...please help). The car had been sitting at an angle on jack stands for quite a while, so it was suggested that I may have a fuel starvation problem and I should hold open the throttle plate with the ignition on. I didn't hear much, so I pulled an injector, put it in a bottle and repeated the process above. No fuel came out! I repeated this with another injector and the same thing happened. I think I hear the fuel pump, but I don't know exactly what I should be listening for. I wonder if I may have loosened some sediment in my tank when I was bouncing the car to settle the shocks? Or maybe my fuel pump is dead and I just don't know what to listen for? What would you do first?
