I've done the following:

1) Checked to confirm spark from spark plugs. I have spark.
2) Cycled the key a few times and then depressed the schrader valve on fuel rail to see if fuel came out. It didn't.
3) Checked to make sure inertia switch in trunk is depressed. It is.
4) Disconnected wiring plug from inertia switch and tested for power. I do have power in those wires.

Am I correct to diagnose this as a fuel pump needing replacement?

what could cause hesitation when trying to accelerate a97 Lincoln town car that has been sitting for two years
I can't find the 12 volt wire that powers the clutch on the compressor. I rebuilt the heads, installed a hi-lift Comp cam, drive gears, Edelbrock intake & carbutor and installed everything and now since the wiring is differant I can't find the 12 volt power supply wire from the heater/air control. There are 3 wires that come off the compressor & 1 of these connects to the hot wire from the control switch.
Can someone help????

Starts and runs fine after sitting a few hours or immediately after cutting off, but if I try to start it 10 min to 2 hrs after driving, it will not idle and will stall unless I rev the engine cosntantly for about 30 sec.
It does not do this very often, maybe once every two too tree weeks. Any suggestions. Does it when the engine is both hot and cold.
