Fuel Pump Testing:

Ok, so I got the fuel tank dropped and the new pump is ready to go in. After the fuel pump install, in theory, I should be able to hook up the electrical connector, key-on the ignition, and see fuel come out of the input line on top of the tank right? The pump is supposed to build a set pressure before engine cranking correct?

I would hate to spend all that time putting the tank back up and then for the pump to not work. Is this a good idea or no? Something else to test the pump before I close everything up? Any ideas shoot em off.

I reassembled my tank/pump and hooked up the fuel lines. I started the jeep while the tank was on the ground, no problem.

Good good that's what I was looking for thanks man. I wasn't sure if the fuel pump had to be at a certain elevation to counter the gravity-siphon effect of the fuel. I'm gonna hook everything back up and fire her up, (hopefully) lol.
