E36 325i STILL Wont Start. HELPPP.

OK I posted a thread last week on how my 95 325i wouldn't start after losing all fuel due to the pump hose somehow coming off and thought it overworked the pump due to loss of fuel and blocking the pumps filter from tank dirt

I brought a used pump with 6 month warranty, put it in. Still dosnt start, I brought a new relay changed the fuel pump relay, charged the battery. STILL WONT START! It wants to but cant quite turn over..

First I want to confirm that the fuel pump relay on the e36 is the 1st relay in that row of 3 individual relays? separate to the main fuse box?

Secondly any ideas on what I should do now?

I've had starter problems with a previous car I had, all it took was a jump start to get it going.. but with this I jump started, charged the battery. It wants to crank over but wont quite make it..

I've gotta check if fuels passing the filter tomorrow and if theres spark at the plugs..

If it wont actually turn over, how are you going to see if there's a spark ??
