No engine will run without fuel.
Do you have power to the pump?
Is the pump properly grounded. You can have the battery sitting in the trunk next to the pump but if it doesn't have a ground then it won't work.
Is there gas in the tank? How much? Are you using the stock fuel inlet and sock to pick up the fuel, or are you picking it up from a sump in the tank?
I would borrow another fuel pump to see if the fuel lines are delivering fuel to the pump as a first test.
