That's usually a cause of no-crank, no start issues, so I don't think you need the tape on the CPS.

When is the last time you changed the fuel filter?

How long does the fuel pump run when you turn the key from Off to On? If it runs for more than 3 seconds, then you have a fuel pump that is on it's way out.

Vacuum loss can prevent starting when the engine is cold because the fuel mix will be too lean.
