No Fuel

Hey, so I just rebuilt my motor and S52 swapped the block. Everything has been put back in the car and everythings hooked up. I went to turn on the car for the first time today, but nothing. It cranks but will not turn over. No fuel is getting into the system. My Aeromotive fuel pressure regulater reads zero, and if you unplug any fuel line, they are completely dry. The fuel pump, however, is priming when you turn the key to position two; and if you try pumping the gas while cranking the car. The hose starts backing off the fuel pump and gas starts leaking from it. What on earth is going on? Anybody have any ideas? Thank you kindly.

-Ian

A backup in the system is causeing excessive pressure causing it to leak out at the easiest place. find what blocking it

Thanks, yeah, I'll have to check all the lines tomorrow. I'm going to throw a fuel filter at it and see if that does anything as well.
