Fuel wise I've checked the flow at the filter and it's good, I've tried both relays and they work, both pumps seem to be active based on the sound and there is fuel if I loosen a bolt on top of the fuel distributor. On first start up it will catch occasionally - yesterday by running a wire to the thermo time switch to hook it up properly it ran, stumbling for about 10 seconds.

So your missing fuel. Your car died in a second while running.
If one fuel pump would fail then I don't think your car would die straight away without any response? Not sure (I had it one's (front) and my car brought me home)
Is it possible for you to check your fuel pressure?
Even if it's hard to get to a fuel injector,try to unscrew one. reconnect, stick it in a bottle and push the air plate under the air filter housing. See what it does.
