I finally was able to borrow a fuel pressure gauge. Lower half pressure is 5.1 bar and it is 5.3 in the upper half of the fuel distributor. Absolutely no fuel is coming out of the exit ports to the injectors! The airflow flap seems smooth over its full travel.

Would a bad distributor result in all of the injector output ports being clogged, or is this perhaps a bad actuator arm that is causing the distributor to not come on line at all?
