    you might have to drop the tank and check for a kinked hose or a loose connection

    Why was the tank replaced and did you also replace the fuel pump?

    Sounds like a lack of fuel pressure. i agree with the above mentioned items. curious why tank was replaced and not fuel filter- could be loose connection, kinked hose or damaged strainer intake on pump.
