Well, it's like a bike in that there's not much else.
Check that you HAVE fuel (my brother the 140IQ engineer has been caught that way twice ... ), check that you can suck fuel out of the tank, check that the lines from the tank to the pump on the motor aren't pinched, check that you can suck fuel to there (of course, I don't have to tell you, but for others, DON'T SUCK WITH YOUR MOUTH. Use a mechanical pump to suck the fuel with! Like one of those drill pumps if nothing else ... ), and check the fuel filter to make sure it's not plugged. Isolate what's good, and what's left is what's bad.
EDIT: You may also need to pull the new pump, and make sure that the fuel eccentric on the end of the cam is working. Or a quick check; while turning it over, peek through the fuel filler and make sure the valves are being operated. To verify that you don't have a busted timing chain, causing there to be no fuel pumping. Not an impossible failure on a RB motor, and depending on the cam and heads, one that might let the motor still turn over.
It should be mentioned here that you wouldn't be feeling against the eccentric itself, big block Mopars use a pushrod that rides the cam eccentric and strokes the fuel pump. If you need to replace the pushrod for any reason (or just wanna take it out and look) you'll see a pipe plug; that's how you pull it out. See pics below:
After all the work i did. My brother came back from overseas told me check fuel pump shaft may of mushroomed . Pull it out toss in electric fuel pump. Shaft is smashed on pretty good. Issues pulling it out. Got mad and walked off . Ill deal with it later haha

I just recently bought a 99 dodge ram 1500. The catalytic converter went out on it. My question is if a Bosal Direct Fit Federal Catalytic Converter 079-3060 from autozone will work. It says it does. Also says the intake and exhaust pipes are slip fit. Does that mean I could install without...
I have a 03 5.7 and I have changed t.b. the fuel pump the mapp sensor and I still have lightning bolt and it revs up and down. I have tried to reset pcm a number of different ways. Could fuel pump being hooked up wrong cause this or could a cat blockage
