assuming that all the lines are clean, including any metal lines, do your best to seal around an air compressor nozzle and add pressure to the tank while you crank her over.

Did you check the little mesh screen on the end of the pick up tube? These will rust away and the pieces will clog up the pick up tube so the gas can't get thru.

Is any gas leaving the fuel pump? Can you syphon any of the gas up to the fuel pump? If yes. Try taking a can of gas and the inlet fuel line, right next to the fuel pump. Now place that line into the can of gas, turn it over. Try another pump if still no gas. I had this problem and just moved to an electronic fuel pump.
