try the IV drip. Container hung from the hood above, (Use a return tube too)
This will keep apump primed under any circumstances, so you can rule out all
the other uncertaities. .

You can draw fuel thru the pump, from inlet to return oytlet. Its like a
goose intestine in/out
 the real guts of the pump operates in a puddle at the bottom of the
housing, while fuel is lowing through the pump body above it. if it runs
this way, you have a transfr problem of some sort.

My guess is your shaft seal is leaky, which results in sucking air, more as
the tank gets empty, and the filter plugs up

>As of last night I checked all my timing marks and all lined up - Tranny
inspection hole pointer, Cam lock plate and injection pump pin. I do a
timing belt about every 18 months the last one was last May, about 20,000
miles ago. So last night I reprimed the pump and it stumbles but never
really runs. I even removed the plunger in the stop solenoid.
>Heres a question with the stop solenoid in place no power applied how come
can I such fuel thru the pump? I apply just a couple of pumps on my hand
vacuum pump and it easily sucks fuel from the filter thru the pump. After I
removed the stop plunger it didn't really speed up the rate. The fuel being
drawn thru is full of air and never really is a solid stream. I use my brake
bleeder container with the clear hose and at best always after the aerated
stream becomes more solid will always have some air bubbles. 
>It is supposed to be warm tomorrow so I might try and pull the pump off my
parts Jetta just to have it on standby if all else fails. I ran that Jetta
up to 480,000 miles the pump leaked slightly from the throttle shaft so
reliability is a question. The other pump has been in my garage attic for
about ten years and is of unknown condition.
