Hi again ok so first thing to check is if there is 12 volts coming to the fuel pump . If there is not try applying a direct 12 volts to the fuel pump and see if it runs. If it does then the problem is most probably the oil pressure switch that switches on the fuel pump. Another thing to check before the fuel pump is the safety lanyard switch. Make sure that it is in the on position.Check the above and let me know. Noel
