LOST!!!!! NEED HELP WITH FUEL SYSTEM

i have an 86 iroc-z with a 305 tpi and the other day i ran out of gas ( i think ). i was coming up a hill and the car just quit. i parked it and went to go get gas. when i got back i realized that i had left the key on.
i turned it off and put the gas in the tank. when i went to start it i noticed that the fuel pump was not running when i turned the key on. i proceeded to change the fuel pump. got it back togeather and the fuel pump still would not run. i double checked the fuses and no luck. any ideas????????!!!!!

You make changing the fuel pump sound like a 5 minute job !
How long did it take you to change the fuel pump out ? (since I need to replace mine and reading the service manual, it's a MAJOR job!)
Disassembly of the rear axle/suspension and draining/dropping the gas tank, etc. An ALL day job from the description.
Car just quit and you went to get gas ?
Why ? did the gas gauge read empty ? If not, you should be looking elsewhere to see why it won't run.
If your gas gauge was empty, and the fuel pump was dead (no audible sound), fuses ok, relay ok, you measured power going to the pump, more than likely your fuel pressure regulator failed and the new pump is now toast also (dead headed due to failed regulator). I would check your engine oil for gas in it.
Had this happen to me, that's why I need to swap in a new fuel pump (fuel pressure regulator failed, dumping gas into the injectors, saturating the crankcase with fuel).
I would like to know how long it took you to swap out the old fuel pump with the new one.
