Have you tried blowing down the fuel line from the pump to the tank? Sometimes crud can form in the tank across the pipe and stop it flowing, or a build up in the pipe somewhere.

At college we were taught that if the pump has been put together properly if you operate the lever you should get a sort of "quacking" noise ( with no fuel in it). I remember it well!

"Nick - do you think you will ever put that old car back together again?"

Thanks Mike, I have blown the pipes through - pump to tank- no problem there.
