Default 1986 Honda Accord wont start

I have an 1986 honda accord lxi that was running perfectly fine the night before, then the next morning I go to car, and it wont start up. So I checked the spark to make sure fire was present...etc..everything as supposed to be. Went to fuel portion of troubleshoot, found problems in main relay and fuel pump. I replaced fuel pump and bypassed relay to have a switch turn on/off fuel pump. Since I have replaced fuel pump I get some sort of slight jerking from the engine acting like it wants to fire. Any ideas of problems I should check for?

I just got a 86 accord and this happened to me and when I took it into the shop we had to replace the distributor, distributor cap and rotor.
Since then its been running pretty well. pretty pricey tho
