Reatta has been in storage for a little over a year. We charged the battery up and it started fine, drove 10 miles or so home without issue. Went to start it the next morning and it will crank but not turn over. We replaced the fuel filter, and confirmed there is fuel pressure via the shrader valve on the engine, though I am not totally sure if it is correct pressure.
The engine cranks strong but we can't get it to catch and start.

I'm planning to go and pull plug wires to verify spark next.
Anyone have ideas on what could have gone wrong in such a short amount of time?

As an update, we were able to get it to start, but it wanted to stall at low RPM. then after a couple tries letting the engine warm up it would not start again. Now we are having low fuel pressure at the shrader valve, so I got a pressure test kit, and checked the pressure pre fuel filter, got nothing, and then just took the line off and had no pressure even when cranking the engine.

I'm thinking fuel pump, though I'm hoping it's clogged rather than just bad. Does anyone have a way to backwash the pump or anything like that to help clean?
