first of all, you damaged the new pump by running it outside the vehicle. it needs fuel as a lubricant.
there are fuses for the relay and should be checked. they may have blown from overdraw from running it outside the tank.

Most pumps dont start pumping for a dead engine, untill the engine is cranked with the starter.Then the pump relay takes over after the engine starts and runs! Check for voltage at the pump while cranking eng.
