    Does it crank? How old is the battery?

    Either you're not getting spark or you're not getting fuel. Given your statement above, I'd suspect fueling. Even so, spark is easy to check. When was the last time the spark plugs were replaced? What's the gap? If you replaced the fuel pump and it worked, there's likely something causing the fuel pump to burn. Did you replace the fuel pre-filter when replacing the fuel pump?
