Silly newb ? 87 930

I am helping my neighbor with his 87. I pulled the IC and plenum off and fixed some vac leaks that were hopefully causing no idle.

replaced all the orange rings and a few hoses.

Buttoned back up and spins over but no start.

removed the green plug on the CIS flapper - fuel pumps both seem to be running, starts for a second then quits and will not re-fire.

I have the air box off....that wont affect starting will it? I was thinking some of the lines and hoses that connect to the air box might be a big air leak or something??

I need to check for spark I guess and hook up the gauges and check the fuel pressure...

Any other thoughts...its been sitting for 3 or 4 weeks just need to get the CIS primed?
