Check out: http://blog.chiltondiy.com/2012/05/how-to-tell-if-your-fuel- pump-needs-replacing/ I am a newbie at this & ever problem is seeming like a feul pump problem... That's what yours sound like to me. That website is a great troubleshooting guide

Might be fuel pressure regulator, Just because you say the pump runs to long, the regulator does so by creating a back pressure since it is located at the beginning of the fuel return line. usually! could also be a leak in your lines.the other thing to check is vacuum lines fuel pressure reg. is controlled by vacuum so a leak in the vacume lines could also affect this

I forgot the other obvious one is fuel filter, has that been changed?
