If it is a 4.3 it needs 55-65 psi to run. 41 while off indicates a weak regulator or fuel pump check valve

It's a 2.2. New engine, injectors, pump, filter, sensors.....basically this truck sat for 7 years and I've replaced almost everything under the hood. Blew out the fuel lines. Return line was clogged and blowing the FPR and causing fuel to flood the intake. Replaced the fuel cap today and it ran somewhat better. On the fuel test I ran, the pressure didn't drop until 20-30 mins later and dropped to 30PSI. I bought an evap canister filter and will change that out this Thursday when I'm off work. The only thing left I can think of is the actual fuel lines, or the pump I bought is faulty.
