Help!!!

Anyone have a problem with the fuel pump not turning off. I have to remove the battery terminal to get the pump to shut off. The car sat for 10 years before I got it. Not sure if its the pump or a pressure regulator ???

Its not the PSI regulator because once the key is turned off the power should be killed to the pump reguardless what psi the line has in it. Did you change your steering collumn? and is everything else turning off with the key?
Sounds like its within the harness that delivers power to the pump or possibly a relay.

The problem started from the day I picked it up and installed a new batter. The car had been stored for 10 years. I have the steering column apart right now and will check the wiring. Anything else to look for or any resources to contacts.

its not in column
.check the fuel pump relay. it primes rhe pump until the engine starts then the pump is powered though the oil psi sending unit.you should be able to pull the relay out and it will still run if there is oil psi. Razz steve

I would start with the oil pressure switch, disconnect it and see what happens.
