Default Fuel Pump Fuse on a 96 outback?

I have dropped in a JMD 2.5 using my intake manifold.
I let the car sit till spring before doing an R&R on the engine.

I have zero fuel flow now and shows an empty tank.
I know I have gas in the tank.
I had a 1/4 tank w/ fuel preservative when put up.
I added 5 more gal. before attempting to start up.

The Haynes manual I have refers to a Fuel Pump Fuse.
Does this fuse really exist?
If so, where can it be found?

The manual also mentions a fuel pump relay.

Thanks for any input.

No I do not hear the fuel pump.
Open the fuel inlet and put an ear to it.

Thank you for the reply

does the check engine light turn on when you switch on the ignition? This means your ECU is working.
Next, (ignition on, check engine light on, engine not running) put a voltmeter at the Fuel pump plug and test for 12 volts on the blk/red wire with your tester going to any ground. No 12 v signal? and CEL is working then test for 12v at the Green relay under the LHS far side of drivers dash. If no 12v at relay plug, your harness is incompatible. Not the end of the world, try placing a temporary jumper from the main relay (brown relay with 6 wires), yellow to small yellow on green relay, with relays attached. This will put fuel in the system and by-pass the ignition switch, but hey it might fire up. Biggest things to know for sure is the the fuel lines are hooked up properly, fuel filter hose goes to highest gas line on intake, vacuum line connected to good source at fuel pressure regulator.
