Well its fixed. Turns out even though I could hear a faint sound of the fuel pump priming it must not have been enough pressure to start the car but was enough to keep it idling.

I cut a hole in rear floor today and pulled out a Ford replacement pump assembly dated 10/2006 and dropped in a new unit. New pump primes much louder and the car fired right up. Took for a test drive and all is well.
