Not starting, opinions needed

My 72 914 will not run, I have learned that there is no voltage to the fuel pump when the starter cranks , I have verified that the relays are good, all fuses are good. I'm sure the 914 pros here have seen this, any suggerstions for my next move?

Are you sure the two fuses on the relay board itself are good? Sometimes even a fuse that looks OK visually can turn out bad.
Other than that, possibly a bad wire at the pump.

Yes, I have changed those, fyi the problem happened when the coil rotated and the leads on the #15 post made contact with ground, lol.

Brad Anders has a flowchart for troubleshooting the D-jet pump circuit. http://members.rennlist.com/pbanders

Bill Williams has a text article about troubleshooting the pump circuit, over on Tim Jones' 914 Fan Page. http://www.914fan.net/fuelpump.html
