Check all your wiring connections, especially around the upper hose, something must be disconnected when work was performed. I would have only changed the fuel pump, if the car was cranking and would start and no fuel pressure. Since it doesn't crank, it is ignition related. Check the battery cables, ground wires, ignition system, starter wires, etc.

Like Tom said ^^^ check all hoses. Mine vehicle did the same thing and my intake hose had a little split in it which kept it from starting.
