Volvo Penta MD7A fuel problem

Hello everybody, I'm having problems with my volvo penta (surprise). After fueling up at the gas dock, the engine started right back up, ran for about 5 seconds, and then died. Wouldn't start back up but cranks fine. I've replaced all filters, and vented the fuel system. The problem now is I can't get the fuel to get to the injector pipes. The vent screws on the CAV flow with fuel freely, but when cranking the engine the pump doesn't put anything out. Has the injector pump gone out? Anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
