When a vehicle that old runs out of gas your fuel filter may get clogged with the particles that were floating on top of the gas in the tank... I would try replacing the filter.

Something I would check is the fuel reset switch. If you ran it out of fuel, this circuit may have tripped to help prevent the fuel pump from running dry and burning up. If it has not been tripped, you may have already burned up the pump. The fuel helps keep it cool and it will get damaged if ran dry. When you turn the key on, do you hear a small "Hum" from underneath the back seat? This is a good way to tell if it is running or not.T.G.P.
