i have a 1997 wrangler sport i recently had a problem getting it started. i traced it down to a bad fuel pump relay i think. i put a jumper wire in were the relay goes and it runs great. so i bought a new relay and put it in and it wont start but runs with the jumper wire i made. am i over looking something.

I am just guessing but the pump only primes the system for a certain amount of time initially so if you pressure reg was bad you would need to cycle the key a few times or bypass the relay and make the pump run all the time.
This is just me guessing though. Try putting either relay back in and cycle the key . . . I think 5-6 times leaving it in the on position for a few secs and then try to start it. If it starts then I might think about a regulator
