Make sure you have a good electrical connection where the fuel pump plugs into the wiring harness. OR just change the fuel pump wiring connector.
Sometimes when you unplug a electrical connector (especially a fuel pump electrical connector) and then plug it back in the connection becomes loose. This loose connection will cause an electrical arc -- this will heat up over a period of time -- causing the connection to intermittentley fail and stop the pump. This arcing also causes corrosion, so when the pump electrical connection cools down and the pump starts back up again, this corrosion causes exessive resistance in the connection, which will cause the pump to be supplied with less voltage than it needs. When any electrical motor is supplied less than operating voltage it will fail rapidly. CAUTION -- if you test the circuit at the fuel pump for the proper voltage, you will indeed have the proper voltage; because when you hook up electrical probes to the connector you will pierce through the arc corrosion -- this is a false reading. Also, make sure the fuel pumps' ground is not corroded -- this will do it too.
BTW -- hope you make the races and I hope you are cheering for the best driver at the speedway this weekend -- who just happens to be DAVE BLANEY ! That's right DAVE BLANEY ! Number 22 CAT CAR ! And "yes" I am a BLANIAC !
Anyway -- Enjoy the races.
