How have you determined it has fuel pressure?

Also, check the vacuum line to the fuel pressure regulator.

Is that while cranking the engine over or before you try to start the engine?

If you look at the wiring diagram on the page I posted a link to earlier, you'll see there is no power at the diagnostic/fuel pump test connector. Why? Because it is a connection to ground:



It simply provides a path to ground for the current flowing through the secondary winding of the circuit opening relay.

OK, sounds like you have the newer style test connector, not quite sure which year they changed. In that case, then yes, the B+ is supplying power to the pump. A Factory Service Manual wiring diagram would show you where that terminal is getting power from.
