I’m not seeing the epoxy. Almost looks like damage from detonation to me. I would have them resurface the head and see if it’s still there.

You could apply 12v to the pump as a test.

Your fuel pump relay on a 7/9 also sends a 12v signal to the radio suppression relay, which powers injectors. Have a spare fuel pump relay to test?
