My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
My info is limited on your model here but I see no one else has responded and thought I would see if I can help here.
Unfortunately I don't have a schematic of the fuel pump operation on this model here.If your vehicle started and ran before the head work was done I would re check the work that was done to see if anything was installed incorrectly or possibly even damaged during the install to see if an issue is found.If a fault is found it will need to be repaired to correct this issue here.If this is all o.k. let me know.
Thanks Pete
