this  could potentially explain both of my problems right?:

1) engine fires  up and dies immediately taking several attempts 
before it will stay  running. 

2) Engine will not accellerate once it is running, if the  throttle is 
depressed the engine will die.

It must seem like my car  is a real basket case but it really isn't, 
or thats what I keep telling my  wife! :0)  


Did you get a fuel pressure tester like was suggested a while back?   This 
could help you identify any pressure problems.  OR just remove the  distributor 
(it is probably on there pretty tight) and check the plunger  yourself. Be 
careful lifting the distributor off the metering housing.  The  plunger will just 
fall right out (if it is ok).  Also plan on replacing the  O-ring underneath 
it if you do this too.
See? you'll see the rule of 20 in no time!!
