FUEL PRESSURE OR PRIME ISSUE

Sometimes engine will not start. When it does, it runs fine, no stalling. I have replaced fuel filter, pump relay, and checked vacuum line to pressure regulator. Thumbnail check said to remove line from filter to regulator to see if gas was in line. None, which points to pump. I turned key on with line disconnected and in gas can, no gas came through line. The pump is only 2 years old, but aftermarket. I have no diagnostic equipment and nearing broke.

Do you

If you are not getting fuel, check to make sure the pump is getting power. IF it is, then it is bad. If there is no power, check fuel pump relay.
