Sounds like you still have air in lines issue.  If the
pump worked fine before.  You could have bumbed a line
and now you are getting air from the tank line.

You say you can not get it to run if you put a coffee
can of fuel in the inbound side, suck it up and
through the pump with your bulb on the outbound side?

That rules out air in the fuel lines, could have small
amount of air in the pump, fill the banjo in and out
holes as well.  If still does not run, humm.

TD pump should run fine, just put a plug over the
aneroid boost hole.
