Icon9 1989 Prelude Turns over but wont start

Had a leak in my gas line for a day or two. Had some issues starting during that time. would turn over for a couple seconds but wouldnt start. then id turn the key back and try again and it would start. Fixed the leak in the gas line and now it wont start unless i pour gas directly into the engine and then it turns off when the gas is used up. it still turns over... could it be the feul pump?

fuel pump or relay. remove the pump connect it directly to 12 volts, should let you know if it's operational.

Can u hear a nice low "hum" when you turn the ignition to ON position without starting the engine. You should be able to hear the pump priming the line for a good 2 seconds.
