Just some suggestions:
1) How is the pump? You mentioned it was "moved up front"... which, iirc, would mean it would have to have been a replacement. I *thought* that the rear mounted pumps were "suckers" whereas the front mounted pumps are "pushers".

2) How is the condition of the relay board itself? On my '76, the underside was completely cracked up like a dry lakebed. Its possible that, exposed to engine heat, the board warps a bit and connections begin to fail (the circutry is inbedded in the plastic).

When the car is hot, and you try to restart it, do you hear the FP relay "click"?
