Good news everyone! New fuel pump was humming with key in "ON" position and the car started right up almost immediately. Before disassembly I checked the fuel pump fuse and also tied that green connector by the battery to 12V and still wasn't working, so I proceeded to tear into putting a new fuel pump in. Did this outside with the temp near 95 and a heat index of over 110 with the humidity, whew!
Didn't go in town to Autozone to check for the fuel pressure guage set cause I wanted to tear into this as soon as possible. Figure I'll put a new fuel filter on this car next week, as I'm sure it could use one.
Thanks everybody for all your support, as this is my first time actually posting a problem on here, even though I've searched for assorted troubleshooting ideas for quite some time now. Hope I can contribute on here in the future!
