Usually the fuel pump, can you hear it prime or buzz when you turn the key?

i HAVE HAD THIS HAPPEN TO ME SEVERAL TIMES. iN MY CASE, AND i BELIEVE YOURS, THE FILTER HAD BEEN PLUGGED DUE TO RUNNING THE GAS TANK AT OR BELOW 1/4 TANK ALL THE TIME. mANY TIMES, i WAS ABLE TO GET BACK ON THE ROAD BY PUTTING A LITTLE GAS ON THE AIR FILTER (PRIMING) . tHIS IS DANGEROUS AND i DONT RECOMMEND WITHOUT A CERTAIN DEGREE OF MECHANICAL APTITUDE
