Funny story, which may also give you some insight.......
Since everyone who has had a Starter or fuel pump crap out on them knows the trick of "Banging on it"..( Works on all types of electric motors by the way)and we have all seen that "Brown paper bag " stuff that is used to suck up moisture on new parts. I had a Customer a few years ago that went thru 5 fuel pumps after a Fuel tank replacement. It was accidentally left in there when some lugnut at a backroads garage installed the tank, floated up when he filled the tank, and got stuck in the pick-up sock when he ran below 1/4.Smack the bottom of the tank, and it started. Since he never brought the car in below 1/4 we never saw the paper, as it floated into a corner when we pulled the tank down.....When we ran the car out of gas, there it was stuck to the sock.
I agree with the others, you have a plugged up sock. replace the sock, and look carefully in the tank for a "Floating Something" before reassembly.
