I believe the engine must be cranking, either way it's better to jumper the fuel pump relay.

Another way would be to turn the key to the on position and lift the fuel distributer flapper.

I forget the fuel amount you should get, but it's something like a cup in 10 seconds. It should be pretty obvious if it's not flowing.

If the pump is running and there's no fuel flow, the strainer at the bottom of the tank may be clogged. I think it's a 19mm allen wrench to remove the strainer, of course the tank must empty or close to it. BE SURE AND HAVE A GOOD FIRE EXTINGUISER NEAR BY. I asked a vender at work a few months ago what happened to his bandaged hand. He said he was working on the fuel pump on his SC when his flashlight ignited some fuel on the ground. He lost the car and his garage and nearly his house. I bought a 20lb extinguiser after that story.
