Did you peel the aluminum housing apart and find that they rusted inside?
I doubt it...

You said you took them out of the car and ran them?
Running them one second without fuel or oil in them to lubricate the pump rollers could have damaged them and the housing they spin in enough causing them to seize or sound nasty if you get them to run again.

Try some WD 40 in the pump and see if you can get it running by tapping on it and jerking it in a rotational motion while hooked up to 12 volts to see if you can get the pump motor to spin up.
