[DML] Help?! Please? Fuel system problem.

Hey guys:

Ok here is the story..   two weeks ago I was heading home from work, 
car dies out at intersection, fortunately several guys stop to help 
me push car to side of road.   I call AAA, at home I find fuel pump 
is not working at all, I disconnect fuel pump lines, take pump out 
connect it to battery, it works fine.   I then find the electrical 
problem with my fuel pump relay, it is not getting current, I find 
the short, fix the bad connection, viola!,, fuel pump works,   I 
reconnect the fuel lines to the pump, but car doesn't start, I try 
several times, then I realize that I stupidly connected the lines 
backwards, the return line to the fuel pump output.   OK so I reverse 
the connections, and car starts right up....    BUT... I now have the 
infamious hot start problem, I figured maybe I screwed up the 
accumulator, so I have an extra one around so I swap it out, still 
same problem, I check fuel lines at the pump, nice and tight, no fuel 
seepage out to loose pressure, ...

I am at wits end....   car starts cold, car starts if you rapidly 
stop then start, but not if you let it sit 15 minutes or so..

Any Ideas?
