    Ok so as the title states, drove to school now won't start. The button on the switch is down like it's supposed to be. Can't heat pump and no fuel comes out of the nipple on the fuel rail. Anything else I should try?
    Put in wrong spot. I've got the 2v

    Checked the one under the hood. Is there any under the dash? I looked in manual. And even pushed the button for the reset in the trunk

    Be sure to beat on the tank while someone cycles the key switch.

    There are lots under the dash. Don't bother looking in the manual, just get on your back and pull/inspect each one. It takes less time and its amazing how often there is a different fuse blown then the one you thought. Go back and check all the others under the hood as well. Until your sure they are all good its hard to diagnose stuff.

    I'll look tomorrow cars 10 miles away at moment. So if a different fuse is blown that don't run the pump it'll affect it?

    trust me its just best to check them all. It could be because of anything from just checking the wrong fuse in the panel to what ever but this is the only way to be sure and it faster too.

    Yep. Your pump was tired when built by ford. 255 is plenty enough!
    Could hot wire the inertia switch power plug just for giggles. That'll let you know if the pump is dead!

    Walboro 255, they make BBK's pumps anyhow and you can save $50 when you buy the Walboro

    Nope, it's a return style, which is ideal for high HP builds
