2.9 wont run

Hey Guys I need a little help with my 86 2.9 I am getting fuel and spark but I cant get it to run. It will fire up on ether run like crap then die. Are there any sensors that would keep it from running?

2.9 and 3.0 are unrelated, you would be better off on the 4.0L forum since they are "brothers" - all Colonge engines.
