Fuel pump relay 1980 450sl

Hi everyone,
I have just been introduced to the wonderful world of my 1980 450sl fuel delivery system. Bought it a couple of yrs ago and fell in love with it. Recently a couple of my exhaust hangers broke and decided to replace the fuel filter while I was down there. After breaking brittle hose and getting soaked with gasoline I got the new filter installed. Car wouldn't start after priming intake, read as much as I could about poss. probs and solutions. Pulled the relay and went to jump the 1 and 2 sockets, I got sparks. Should the line be hot with the key out of the ignition?
Thanks for any info
