There is a low pressure switch that may be the cause of it not engaging ... did you have a problem before doing anything?

Here's a great video ... this will show you what to look for and how it works ... you don't have a High cutoff ... just a low but it will look the same https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMi3VDkPdCo
