I'm leaning toward a fuel pump.
When the key is in the start position it energized the pump. When turned off it de-energizes the pump.
If I remember right there is a fuel pump dampner on those that didn't always work out with the aftermarket pumps.I think there was a TSB on it.
Next time you start her, have someone back by the fuel tank listening. Put a funnel in the tank if you want to amplify.
