Try using a clip lead around the fuel pump relay so that you get power full 
time to the pump. You should see a small spark when you make the final clip 
lead connection, indicating that the pump is drawing current. If there is no 
spark that indicates that there is not a complete current path, but the problem 
may still be inside the pump, most likely dirt/corrosion under the motor 

With the jumper around the relay, go under the front end and gently tap the 
pump in various directions. The vibration from this will eventually break thru 
the crud and allow the pump to run. Usually it will continue to run once you 
have broken thru this problem, which generally occurs just from long storage.

I have replacement rubber mounts.
