Folks do that, but it is best to remove the old pump. BTW you see this often on used car lots (and you can bet they didn't drop the tank).

Yea sorry its called a relay. Take cover off relay for fuel pump and you will see a metal tab that is not quite touching the unit and all you do is squeeze the relay together allowing that piece of metal to touch unit. This will turn on the fuel pump. It will allow you to run fuel pump manually.
