Don't mean to offend you in any way, but try leaving the ignition key in the run position and disconnect your oil pressure sensor, then see if you have power.
My '80 280ZX ran the same way, I found chunks of rust in the inlet nipple of the fuel pump. The metal line from inside the tank to the fuel pump was all rusted up. But the inside of the gas tank was really clean. Boggled my mind.
I ended up just putting in a new fuel pump 'cause I had already bought it.

Hope you figure it out.

79--83 ZXs The fuel pump runs for 5 seconds when key is turned to on or run, then shuts off until oil pressur is up.

76?--78 FI Zs The fuel pump is turned on by AFM, no juce till motor is turnning over creatting air flow.
