The pump was screwed because the gas broke down and coated the whole fuel pump with a tar residue.
I'm about to install a new fuel pump, fuel filter and fuel pressure regulator after letting it sit for a little while longer.
My advice to people that let cars sit for without starting them for long stretches. Use a fuel stabilizer! It's a lot cheaper then replacing all the parts and the time involved replacing parts and cleaning the gunk out of the gas tank!
