At first it sounds like an accumulator or check valve problem, but since you've ruled that out...

Wild speculative guess: Fuel pump relay. I had a similar problem on a 107 traceable to the pump relay - it would supply voltage intermittently while cranking.

Even if you have voltage and hear the pumps run when you first turn the key to the 'run' position, it is not assurance that you are getting *consistent* voltage to the pumps when actually *cranking* - at least on earlier cars, the voltage is supplied by different circuits (terminal 30 & terminal 15 if I remember correctly)
