Is the filter full of junk? What kind of junk? If so you may have rust or water or dirt in your fuel tank. If that it the case then it should be cleaned out or replaced if badly rusty.

New filter new tank and new sending unit

Check the fuel tank vent. If it is kinked or blocked it could be your problem.
