Default need help on 85 T type. no start

After being stored for about 18 months I tried to start my T type. Checked for fire with sparkplug on top of engine. good spark. sprayed ether in throttle body and nothing. removed a spark plug and sprayed ether in cylinder, replaced plug and tried. It fired one time (obviously only once) fuel pump is running has good compression, what to check next? How to check fuel pressure?

Seems like a fuel problem to me. I'd crack open the top then bottom fuel lines to the fuel filter. The fuel filter is clogged if you don't have fuel dripping from the top and have fuel dripping from the bottom. While a clogged fuel filter is unlikely, it tells you that you've got fuel from the pump up to the rail and injectors.

It could be your fuel pressure regulator. It could be your injector signaling, no pulses to your injectors, no fuel to the cylinders.
