My apologies as I have not had a chance to yet try other things people have recommended as I haven't had the time lately.

When I depress the air metering plate the pumps run, what is interesting is that it makes a shrill, shrieking noise at first.

Looking over the entire car i found the yellow wire connector to the thermo time switch broken off. I moved the pipe to the turbo out of the way and removed the thermo time switch. I then reattached the wire with the switch removed from the car and cranked the engine. The car stumbled to life for about 10 seconds - more than it has during this process.

Would the thermo time switch stop the car from running?

Again , do you smell fuel true your exhaust when cranking?
If you have a spark then it's your fuel. at least if it's strong enough and about right on time.
