yes we also checked that, it tries to crank but I still don't hear the pump turn on we just took the line off the pump and tried to turn over no fuel coming out

just was playing around and being that I was getting power to the pump I decided to test the ground so I cut the ground wire and hooked the ground that I ran from the neg. side of the battery and it fired right up. so turns out I had a bad ground...

My brother 96 Chevy I had been working also had a problem like yours. A bad ground was also the problem so I had sanded the rust off the cross member (where it was grounded with a bolt) and it has no problem firing up
