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.
And/or, have someone do that for you as you crank the engine. For all we know, the metering arm is hanging up and not deflecting enough to flow enough fuel. Push it down just a mm or so, hold it there, and crank away. I bet she'll keep running, though maybe somewhat rich.
