fuel pump won't work
so after i put my gas tank in the back, i can't get the jeep to start anymore. it would crank and crank, and the fuel pump would turn on, but nothing would turn over. i got a new tank and sending unit put in, and now the pump won't turn on, i was assured the pump was working before, so i'm at a loss... i checked the fuse, and ohmed out the coil side of the relay. that part seemed good, plus i switched the relay and put it in place of the ignition one, and it still cranked so, it's fine. but any ideas on what to check before i go and spend 130 bucks on a pump?
the first thing i did was to check the harness. other then that i haven't really looked at too much else. i wire brushed a little bit of the rust that was on the ground but that's it. the wires are even the same colors as my old one.

XJ on 37's
i had to ground my fuel pump/sender unit to the body. apparently the ground had corroded somewhere, and was just easier to run a new ground. i ran a wire from one of the bolts on the sender unit to the body....just a suggestion

hey there should be a ground wire at the hand brake attachment, and if its not grounded, car wont start. so check your hand brake (e-brake), if there is loose o-head wire, connect it to hand brake bracket.
