If you believe it to be a fuel related issue, I would take a look at the fuel pressure. Cycling the key will not refill the fuel bowl on a 97 as the fuel pump is mechanical (assuming a stock fuel system).

fuel pressure is like 13 lbs, checked off of schrader valve?
bleed fuel lines everywhere I could get to with out pulling valve covers
Is it just coincidence the pump went out right when he changed the filter?

Thanks, Rock Auto has some good prices. I'm not sure what brand filter he got but the one that came off it had the lid attached to the filter and the new one is two piece with the lid separate from the filter?
