85 BMW 325e No Start

Have a no start condition when turning key. Sounds like it wants to turn over but wont. Have replaced cap, rotor, ignition coil, fuel filter, spark plugs and reference sensor. Am thinking either fuel pump(but i smell gas in engine compartment) or Starter. I have spark and assume fuel, but it just won't kick over, dealer said it might be flooded, removed spark plugs and aired out for hours and reinstalled, checked gap, but no start! I have a 5 speed manual tranny.

Whoa Nelley. Stop changing parts, especially expensive ones!

You need to know if you lack spark, fuel, air or any combination of these.
