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
