Hello, make sure the battery has a full charge and the cables are ok. If you think there might be an internal engine issue, Try to turn the crank by hand. It might be overkill, but, if you disable the ignition, pull the plugs and accessory belt/s, the crank might be easier to turn.
If the pump runs all the time, with key off, check the oil pressure switch.

I removed all plugs, and gas ran out of #'s 5 & 7 cyls. More from 7.
So I had a hydralic lock.
Obivously the new fuel pressure or fuel pump regulator that I changed is defective, or I installed something incorrectly.
Any ideas as to why fuel is running into #7 cyl constantly?
Someting I did, or a wrong part?

Maybe there is an injector problem, on those cylinders. After you fix the problem, you probably need to change your oil and filter, maybe more than once. Plugs also.

Just a note to say thanks for your help.
When I pulled the plenum I found the regulator laying on the intake. Seems I did not installl the retaining clip properly, and when the system built pressure, it simply blew it out.
Truck runs fine, and the fuel pump is not running constantly, so the regulator solved the orginal problem.
There was an issue with the engine compartment on fire. But I will save that for another time.

Well, sorry about the fire. Sounds like you found the problem?
