Assuming the engine is getting fuel with the new fuel pump, the next step would be to check for spark. The engine needs spark, air, and fuel to start and run. Air is almost always present, and again assuming fuel is as well with the new pump, there is possibly a spark issue. Lack of spark can be due to a bad ignition coil, a bad ignition module, or even a bad distributor. You can test for spark yourself, or you can have a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect your no start condition to diagnose the exact cause.
