Get new straps. Drain gas tank if possible, prop up gas tank from underneath, remove old straps, install new straps.

SOURCE: I have a 1986 Ford

I've had this problem twice (2 different trucks). Both times it turned out to be a bad ground in the engine compartment. Look for a loose/broken wire near the battery. If you find one that doesn't have a home, ground it to the negative battery terminal and see if that fixes your problem. (The wire that I'm referring to serves as a ground for the fuel system, and the pump won't run if it's disconnected. If the wire isn't secured somewhere away from the fan, the fan can catch it and break it.)

Hope this helps.
