Is it a cranking or starting problem? I'm not sure which way to steer you since you tried a battery (indicating a cranking issue) and you're asking about the fuel system (indicating a starting problem). If the cranking speed is good, I would check fuel pressure and volume after the priming shot and during cranking.

If the gas gauge worked before, It sounds like when you changed out the fuel pump & were reinstalling the tank, the wire that goes to the gauge was not plugged in all the way, or it may be just the wire itself pulled away from the connector.
