"the fuel pump will not engage like it should", are you saying you don't hear the pump prime when you turn the key?

oooo again it seems to be my lot in life....the black battery cable has a clamp end and a loop end....take the bolt off the loop end and wirebrush it...the chassis tooo....and where the 1/0 cable connects to the engine block too, to insure a steady 12 volts and three hundred or more cold cranking amps~...this way the fuel pump relay will have 12 volts to make the contacts happen....the ignition relay will be happy now that it has steady 12 volts~....get a NEW battery these start to NOT take a charge 10% per year- --(according to NM Qureshi, battery engineer of 40 years){interstate battery}
