I have seen a few setups that cut the fuel pump and coil signal with two seperate relays, controlled by one push button switch. I have been thinking about this:

1. depress switch, relay 1 and 2 close, shutting off coil signal and fuel pump pressure.

2. release switch after a few seconds, relays open, allowing coil signal and fuel pump to refire. Fuel pump pressure will return almost immediately. Fuel is not burned or released as long as the engine is not spinning as the engine is closed at this point.
Howcome when I did this the fuel pump pressure did not return immediately to normal? Does this mean that it needs replacement already? Thanks.
