If I'm seeing the diagram of your fuel pump correctly it looks to have a lever for the pumping action. When you had it apart did you turn the engine over to see if the action in the engine is working against the lever?

Is it a Kohler? Kohlers have different lever styles.

bolw air in the tank and sometimes that primes the pump. Had to do it on mine after takeing the fuel system apart and worked out ok.

When I've had fuel systems apart I usually spike the carb with some gas to get the motor to fire and draw some of the air through. Replaced the fuel line from front to back on my 214 and it fired over in one or two tries.
