Have you pressed in on the shrader valve on the fuel rail?
See if it needs bleeding air pressure off to move fuel

When I redid my whole fuel system in my boat I had to run the fuel pump and at the same time pressurize the tank by taking an air hose and a rag and blowing air in the vent for the fuel tank....blast of air for 20-30 seconds it picked up a prime right away and never had to do it again....may want to try that...could just be air bound and needs a little help getting fuel to the pump

one of the best tools a boater can have who works on their own boats and for cheap. You use it min 2 times per year. The red remote gas tank and primer bulb
