If pulse pump, it has to get the pulse from the crankcase line. The P connection on the pump.

Voltmeter? Set meter on DC volts, black lead to ground or battery negative, and red lead to probe the fuel pump harness.

i did not get a chance to test yet. So far i have located the fuel level wires and that tested at 6 volts and need to locate the pump next. Will need to remove some body parts to follow the fuel line. I will be out of town for the weekend and will continue when I get back

I assume the Truckster is 12 volts? You need battery voltage to the pump!

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
tested the wires to the fuel pump and there is zero reading with the ignition key on

Trace back to see if it is fed by fuse or keyswitch.
