I read in the first post that you dropped the tank and replaced the pump because you didn't hear the pump priming. It was probably bad. Now you aren't getting fuel out of the line coming out of the fuel tank. Other fuel system designs have 2 lines going to the tank. You might've read that Ford used a "returnless" fuel injection system on this car, so there is no return. You can't possibly be looking at the wrong line. There is also no FPR in this system to be blocking fuel flow. The fuel pump control module is what regulates the fuel pump speed through resistors to modulate the fuel flow to the engine. Yes, there is a flying saucer looking device on the fuel line near the fuel rail that looks like it might be an FPR. It's called the "fuel pulse damper". This post is just for knowledge's sake.

Your only course of action is to drop the tank again, and see what happened- possibly test the pump to be sure it is doing it's job. Just because it's making noise doesn't mean it is working. Something could be wrong with the pump from the factory.

Have you checked the inersha switch? Pass side kick panel. Make sure the button is pushed down

The pump wouldn't buzz if it was the inertia switch/ fuel cutoff switch.

Well i pulled the sending unit back out of the tank and it was a stupid little issue like most things are. The dual port housing on top where the nipple coming out of the pump slides into in order to move fuel in to the sending unit flex-lines was not seated properly, which made the fuel just come out of the pump and go back into the tank. Once I seated the housing properly the seal was good and fuel went solely through the flex lines and out of the sending unit...life is good and the car runs great (knock on wood). Thanks for the help everybody.
