I am looking at a non-running 1999 Discovery. The person I am buying it from has little mechanical experience. He purchased the car a year ago for $3200. He was driving the vehicle the other day and the car died.

He would press the gas and the car would no longer accelerate. I was told the issue was a fuel pump. I have since changed the fuel pump but the truck is still not starting. I can likely pick the truck up for about $800. 1999 Discover 160k. I know this is a risk but I am thinking it may just be a clogged filter or something.

Any advice? For $800 I kind of want to jump in and see if I can get it running.

I agree. If it is solid. $800 is fair even if you part it out you will likely come out on top.
Question..... you changed the fuel pump? But you don't own it yet? Are you a tech? Why did you change the pump?

Don't buy it or get involved any more unless you have:

1. a fair bit of mechanical/auto-electrical experience and tools.
2. a garage or somewhere reasonably comfortable to work on it.
3. time, energy, patience and money to devote to the vehicle.

The $800 is generous on your part - if you get the vehicle running for the seller, he might up the price...
