Check oil in HPOP? Check oil in engine? It might surprise you.

Pull the FF lid and see if there is fuel in the fuel bowl. If you do then open the water drain and attach a hose to the end of the drain tube and turn the key to on, you should have a good solid stream of fuel coming out. What condition are the batteries? The engine must spin at 250 rpm, IIRC, in order to fire, so they can crank but not fast enough to fire. Also verify that the UVC harnesses are both connected and no burnt or loose connections inside them.
