Question First time - long time

Hi there SAAB world. Be easy on me I'm real tender but eager to learn.
I've been a "proud" owner of a 2001 9 5 SE since 2012. My wife and I bought
"Silver Thud" as a b-day project for me. It came with a DOA A/T from a auction. I sourced a used trans. and had it installed at a shop. The first drive
after picking it was a eye opener! Yah, that little S button on the shift handle
made me a devoted fan! The car was then in good shape for a while and we
enjoyed it-wonderful road car-I then started the Swedish" edegimacation" with
maintain duty. The only big ticket item was a froze water pump that took out the belt while on vacation and 2 years later I did a turbo R&R. So it's been
just the day to day stuff until a month ago.
Drove the car to town for a Saturday shop and back home. No problem until
I went to start it the next day. No start. Checked the electrics OK checked the
Schroeder valve on the rail no pressure. Checked for inop fuel pump eureka
dead pump. Tested pump with jumper wire no go. Pulled OE pump and ordered
new assembly, filter and just for fun a new pressure reg. Received all parts and installed all. With a couple key cycles I started the. Happy day until I drove it. It stalled. would restart but then die. What am I missing? New pump on the way. HELP PLEASE
