Maybe the fuel line is clogged or the fuel filter. You didn't mention that you replaced that.

i took the lines off and unplugged the wires to the pump and touched a wire to a jumper box and then to the prongs on the pump and it was pumping out fuel, but when i plugged the wire back in and turned the car on i can hear the pump turn on, but it wont pump fuel
