Fuel gets all the way to the fuel pump, fuel pump is active, as in moving when appropriate through contact with the cam. But fuel does not get past the fuel pump. Tried old fuel pump too which was leaking but working when we took it off. No blocked pipes. This makes no sense. What can it be?

Ok so stripped everything back, ie fuel pump, rechecked fuel lines etc etc put it back together and guess what?

She fired up! Not running well but running. Thanks all for advice and il post any updates as they happen. I’ve still no clue as to what was wrong as simply repeating what had already been done but hey I’m not complaining. Thanks again!
