Andy is right on this one. You need to prime the system. It takes a long time to fill the lines to the injectors.

Here's what I do. Remove the belt from the pump. Use another belt to put over the pump drive sprocket, and use an electric drill to spin the pump. Make sure the key is on so the fuel supply pump is running. Then reconnect the belt. (correctly timed, of course)

Or sometimes I'm lazy, and use carb cleaner sprayed down the stacks while someone starts the car for me, and keep it running with the spray until it self-primes.

Or you could run a jumper wire to the cold start squirter to inject fuel to keep it running until it primes.
